Welsh players in the e2e4 High Wycombe event


October 12th - 14th


Well done to the players who took part in the recent e2e4 Chess Congress, held at the De Vere Uplands Hotel, High Wycombe, from 12th-14 October 2012. 

Ioan Rees came joint 3rd in the Open Section (37 players) with 4/5 and FIDE TPR = 2464.

Alyssa Wang came joint 3rd in the Major Section (49 players) with 4/5 and FIDE TPR = 1951.

Stephanie du Toit and Emily Wang also played in the Major Section and scored 3/5 and 1.5/5 respectively, very creditable results given the strength of the field in their first e2e4 tournament.
