Connell wins November Open

The first over the board tournament in Ennis for some time took place last weekend with almost 100 competitors from all over the country and abroad taking part. Covid measures were in place with social distancing, mask wearing and COVID vaccination certificates being obligatory.

Well done to Blair Connell who took first place on a perfect score of 5 from 5, demonstrating nice endgame skills to take home the point in a few games. In second place was Juan Rodriguez Fernandez on 4.5 from 5 and who played very solidly throughout. Yours truly finished in third on tie break with 4 points after a blunder in the last round cost me a chance to battle for first. Other players finishing on 4 points were Markel Vesga Izeta, Kavin Venkatesan, Anthony Fox, John Kelly, Andrei Ivanov, Adam Collins, Alice O’Gorman, Peter Cafolla, Tommy Dunne, Henk de Jonge and John Waldron.

Well done also to Ennis man James O’Sullivan who won a grading prize as did Markel Vesga Izeta, Andrei Ivanov, James Scarry, and Oisin O Sullivan.

Thanks to all involved in organising what was a very enjoyable event, especially main organizer John Cassidy and the arbiter Neal Kirby who did an excellent job. Full results now available online courtesy of James Forde.
