QUB Open Rapidplay 2006

Final Round action

The now five-round rapidplay tournament was held in the John Mercer Halls in South Belfast. The competition was won by four times Ulster champion Steve Scannell. Fisherwick’s Michael Waters secured the runner-up spot after a tiebreak win over Frank Wu of Methodist College. However, the schoolboy still had the consolation of a grading prize for his strong performance. The other grading prizes were won by an unbeaten Damien Lavery and Drew Ferguson of the QUB Chess Club.
