Gatwick Turns Pink!

A stunning success to report for Joshua (remember him?) as he scooped sole first prize at the e2e4 Gatwick U-1950 weekender with a perfect score of 5/5. This triumph secured him the not inconsiderable first prize of £500 - and a Tournament Performance Rating of 2558!! Very annoying to see him described as a Stockport player, though. They probably can't even remember his name yet - it was us who made him what he is today, through countless lessons at The Royal Oak and The Engine. We demand some of the reflected glory!

  1. That makes 8 wins from 8 since I moved away. Money may be worth more up North, but it seems grading points are worth much less.

    It is a far cry from being crushed by Roy in my last game in Kenilworth.
