The Ulster Champion Stephen Rush plays in the British Championships

This year Ulster was represented by Stephen Rush at the British Championships. We watched with excitement - Stephen was ranked 103 out of 103 - but those who know Stephen know hes capable of winning and has an excellent tenacious style. How did he do....

Its always good when Ulster is represented at the British Championships - and we havent had a player play for a number of years so it was with excitement that we saw Stephen Rush rise with enthusiasm to the challenge.

Stephen won his first game against Peter Gayson rated 2160. He then lost games 2 and 3 and won game 4 against Sarah Longson (2074), loosing the next game and then drawing the sixth game against Paul Lam (2111), the next game was lost and the eighth game against Shabir Okhai (2111) another draw, the final 9th game was a loss. But what a brilliant result - 3 points and joint 85th place. Well done Stephen.
