2017 Bristol Winter Congress
Lewis Martin: 4/5 (2nd place)
In round four Lewis had a fine draw with Keith Arkell. It was agreed that Lewis always had the upper hand in this game, but in the end couldn't force through his extra pawn.
Oliver Stubbs: 2½/5 (1900 performance)
An excellent first try in an Open section for Oli.
Andrew Munn: 3/5
A fine performance by Andrew finishing 5th out of a field of 27 players. His only loss being against the eventual winner Stephen Williams.
Toby Kan: 2/5
Toby is getting more and more accustomed to playing in he Major Section. This included an excellent win in round 3 against a very experienced 144 graded player.
Yuvraj Kumar: 3½/5
Yet another excellent tournament for Yuvraj, finishing 5th out of a considerable field of 43 players. Yuvraj showed great resolve and was unbeaten over the whole weekend; 2 wins and 3 draws.
Fedor Turetskiy: 3/5
Fedor continued his recent good league form with a solid score of 3/5 over the weekend.
Grant Daly: 3/5
A usual solid performance by Grant finishing in the top third of the table.
Jack Tye: 1½/5.
Not a usual strong performance for Jack and although he will not be content with this result, Jack was always very supportive of his team mates.
Elmira Walker: 1½/5
This was Elmira's first weekend congress and she showed great spirit and determination in her play. It was very good to have Elmira at the Congress as a new addition to the usual Downend & Fishponds gang.
Shaun Walsh: ½/5
Shaun is obviously a bit rusty after not being able to play much chess recently. I am sure he will soon be back to his best.
