Colin Crouch Celebration Chess Congress

The chess congress celebrating the life of International Master Colin Crouch, our former BCA champion, took place from the 2nd to the 10th of April. There were six different tournaments in all. The main event was the Masters, a nine round Swiss, which attracted more than forty entrants including six Grandmasters, three International Masters and six FIDE Masters. Competing alongside them were two of our own players, Candidate Master Chris Ross and our current BCA Champion Bill Armstrong. Also, Steve Hilton represented us in the Intermediate FIDE Under 2000, a five round Swiss tournament.

This event has only just finished at the time of going to press. A report will appear in the August issue.
