QUB Rapid 2010 report

On March 20th 2010 QUB played host to Belfast’s richest ever one day chess event, with the Spring sunshine and £1,000 prize fund attracting nearly 50 competitors from all over Ireland.

The Students Union proved an excellent venue for the tournament, with contestants and spectators taking full advantage of the café and - especially after the prospect of individual glory became more remote - the bar.

Becoming the first ever player to win back-to-back Rapid titles in Queen’s was Irish Champion and Fide Master Colm Daly. Daly produced a perfect score with 5 wins from 5 games, thus enjoying another highly successful and profitable day in Belfast as he finished on top by a clear point.
