British Rapidplay 2018

Some of our players made the trek to Ilkley to play in the 11-round event on 24th and 25th November. We had players in all the sections.

In the Open, Jonah Willow scored 6/11 and Armaan Gogia finished on 4.5pts.

In the Major, Anita Somton also scored 6/11.

In the Intermediate, Vidura Mendis finished on 4.5pts.

Finally, in the Minor, Joseph Hurst was best placed on 6.5/11. Also in this section was Kian Chan (5pts) and Arjuna Mendis (3pts).

As all the players will testify, playing 11 rounds of rapid chess is hard work! So well done to all the players. For the first time all sections were FIDE-rated so most players should now have FIDE ratings to rank themselves on the world stage!
