Amazing Penarth Congress Results!

Richard Livermore has given us some great news about Malpas results in the recent Penarth Congress.  Thanks Richard.


Richard himself won the Major with a score of 4.5 out of 5!   This score cements Richard’s position as a force to be reckoned with, especially given his strong continuing performance in the Malpas Chess Club Championship.


Robert  Taylor came joint 2nd in the Welsh Seniors’ Championship, with a score of 3.5 out of 5, unbeaten despite three of his opponents being over 2000.


Dave Turner‘s performance was outstanding  –  he tied for 1st in the Open with 3.5 out of 5, which was actually 3 out of 4 over the board, as he had taken a 0.5 point bye in the first round.  His draws were against two 2250 players, Tim Kett and a Polish Fide Master, and his wins against a 2160 player and a 2200 Women’s Fide Master.   I think you’ll agree that this is an awesome performance and worthy of major congratulation.


These bullet-proof Malpas players scored a total of 9 wins, 5 draws and no losses!

Well done to everyone.
