With the league matches completed on Tuesday, 11 members of the Bury St Edmunds Chess Club met this evening for a five-round 15-minute tournament.
The tournament was won by Scott Taylor (far right in the photo), who scored four points out of five. He was beaten in the final round by Richard Lamont, but won on sum of progressive scores. Scott received a bottle of champagne for his efforts, whilst Richard won a box of Belgian chocolates. The Junior prize was shared between Patrick Gembis and Fraser Fallows, both on three points. The best result of the evening was in Round 2, when Dave Clark (97) beat Richard Lamont (171).
