Frodsham Congress

Julian Hawthorne scored a very creditable 2.5/5 in this weekend's Frodsham Congress. After taking a bye in the 1st round he then proceeded to beat players graded 151 and 159 in the 2nd and 3rd rounds to go into the final day in joint 3rd place. Unfortunately it all went pear shaped on the Sunday,where he lost both of his games to finish joint 14th out of 35 entrants. Nonetheless, it was an excellent performance as he was playing in the U160 Section, where he was ranked 29th out of the 35 entrants.
