The full results for the Bury St Edmunds Congress are now available on the Suffolk grading website here.
There were a number of outstanding performances by Suffolk players:
In the Open section, Adam Hunt drew his individual game with GM Alex Cherniaev and finished level with him on 4½ points. Both earned £375 for their efforts.
Also in the Open, Dagne Ciuksyte and Shaun Munson scored 3½ points, sharing third place with GM Chris Ward. Ed Player and Mike Harris both scored 3 points.
In the Major section, 16-year old Silas Peck scored 3½ points to finish equal 3rd.
Further down the list, John Peters, Malcolm Lightfoot, Robert Cope and Kevin Greenacre all scored 3 points.
The Intermediate section saw a brilliant performance by Clacton’s Mike Coughtrey, who shared second place with four others, despite being graded only 115 (which would have qualified him to play in the Minor section).
Charles Richmond, Ed Kirkham, Mark Weidman and Alex Sheerin all scored 3 points. 11-year old Alex enjoyed a 139 grading performance.
Colin Gardiner from Newmarket shared first place in the Minor, with 13-year old William Sait from Bury St Edmunds in equal third place on 4 points. William celebrated his 14th birthday the day after the Congress!
