In these days of doom and gloom, when many long-established events are suffering through low attendances, it’s great to see excellent turnouts at relatively new events. The Ennis Congresses, now in their 5th year, are highly successful, and are very enjoyable events by all accounts. Tournament reports for this year’s Open (1st GM Gawain Jones in a field of 49 competitors) and U1400 (1st Herickson Da Silva of Ennis C.C., 39 competitors) are now on the tournaments page.
Many thanks to Rory Quinn and Gerry Graham for helping out. Gerry provided the raw SwissPerfect files for these reports: the standard output omits information on the colours.
