Last Wednesday’s club tournament was a good practice run for this weekend’s Leinster Chess Union Grand Prix tournament. Darius Rezania was the overall winner on a perfect 5/5, Cillian Comey was the runner up on 4/5, his only loss against the winner in round two.
Hartik Tadisetti took 3rd place (by computer tie-break) on equal points with Eoin Spence and David O’Rourke.
It was a night for younger siblings with David O’Rourke and Sadhbh Kenny both edging out their older siblings in the final rankings.
The only draw of the night was a close fought battle between James Teirney and Cillian Kane, which ended on a K-K stalemate.
