Congress Challenges


I finally offer my games from the Gatwick e2 e4 Congress back in March. I was playing pretty well at the time and have to say that I was hugely impressed with the playing conditions. It was a pleasure playing in a decent hotel with good facilities and good food. It compares very favourably with cold church halls and the curling sandwiches of my youth. It encourages me to play in more such tournaments … but I have been spoiled now and will only play at e2 e4 tournaments!

Dave Cork is a fellow club chess player. In fact he used to play at my own club although he now plays elsewhere. I knew that he is a regular player with a competitive spirit and looked forward to a tough first round.
