Adi just misses title at Midlands Championships

Playing the MCCU Congress from 9th-11th August, Adi was on 3.5/4 going into the final round.

He needed a win to come joint first and gain the qualifying place for the British Championships next year, but just fell short. Nevertheless he finished 5th, including drawing to winner IM Brandon Clarke, a great performance which boosed his FIDE rating as well.

Also playing in the Open, Armaan Gogia scored 2pts.

Competing in the FIDE-rated Major, Hambel Willow finished on 3pts, vying for second place going into the final round.

All the results can be found on chess-results. Hopefully soon the prizes and reports will be on the MCCU website too.
