Second for Vidura in Doncaster Congress
The 4NCL held its first Congress in Doncaster over the weekend of 8th-10th September, and some of our best juniors made the trip there.
Vidura Mendis had a successful weekend in the Minor section, scoring 3.5/5 which was enough for joint second and a prize of £38. He was unbeaten.
In the Open section. Jonah Willow scored 3/5, Adi Munshi 2/5 and Anita Somton 1.5/5. Both Adi and Anita could have played a lower section so these were fine efforts.
In the Major section, Armaan Gogia scored 2/5, with a performance rating over 400 points higher than his FIDE rating!
Arjuna Mendis also played in the Minor, finishing on 1/5. All good experience for our aspiring chess players!
