Bury St Edmunds’ Mark Le-Vine (right) is travelling to Germany today to play in the Bad Wiessee tournament. He is one of only two entrants from England.
There are 476 entrants in this single section, nine round tournament, which begins tomorrow, Saturday. Mark doesn’t have an Elo rating yet, so he will probably be placed near the bottom of the list when the pairings are announced.
You can follow his progress on the tournament website.
