Some of you may be aware that Dave Ireland took part in the Isle of Man Tournament last week.
I am delighted to say that Dave finished with 5.5/7 points, which meant he finished 1st= with two other players for the Major Tournament.
The result is all the more remarkable as if we take a look at the other players ratings we see that Dave finished ahead of an FM & WFM and also finished level on points with a CM.
We can also see that Dave was rated 19th out of 35 participants at the start of the Tournament, so to finish 1= is a tremendous achievement.
Our Congratulations go to Dave for such a good result and he has said he will post a fuller report in a few days.
Here are the final standings :
