Adi Munshi wins Nottingham Congress Open!

In a stunning result, our own top junior amazed everyone by winning this strong event.

Adi was unbeaten during the event, drawing his first game and then holding his nerve to outplay each of his highly graded opponents. In the final round he was against the 210 player Dong, who only needed a draw to win outright. He offered Adi a draw immediately, who refused!

We have obtained Adi's game against Dong below:
