Belfast Summerfest 2005

The Belfast Summerfest tournament, the final weekend tournament of the Ulster chess season, was held at the Belfast Boat Club on the weekend of the 11th and 12th June 2005.

In the Open section, top seed Stephen Scannell got off to a slow start, conceding draws to Michael Waters and Damien Lavery in rounds 2 and 3 before turning on the after-burners on Day 2 to finish first with 5 points out of 6. As well as the first place prize money, Steve gets to keep the Arthur Cootes Memorial Cup for the next year. John Masterson lost to Scannell in the first round but then won 3 and drew 2 of his 5 remaining games to finish a clear second. Lavery and David Grzymek shared the Grading Prize.
