The Beckenham FIDE tournament concluded on 6th April. It was very tight, with 7 of the 8 players separated by only 1½ points.
I was not helped by losing my last 2 games. Richard, on the other hand, had a storming finish with 3 wins against the top 3 rated players. No one was undefeated.
The joint winners were Daniel Lindner and Jean-Baptiste Jugand on 4½/7:
All in all, very good for the relationship between Beckenham and Petts Wood.
Beckenham players, rated over 1900 ECF, who wish to be considered for next season’s tournament should let me know.
