Virtual Williamson 2021 Day 1 report: Saturday 30th January 2021.

We have 3 rounds on the first day and some 26 players. With 3 talented youngsters in the Intermediates and introducing a top new player to Ulster Tahmankar Mandar in the Seniors. How did it all go...

I am always a little nervious when a competition is about to start. But we had a brilliant list of players. Including youngsters Ethan Cole, Diana Bueckert and Kamal Taufik. Also a new top player Tahmankar Mandar in the senior section. It was going to be a good competition with plenty of excellent chess.

I wish to than Brendan Jamison for assisting in the running of this tournament.

I have a Zoom meeting open 30 minutes before each round incase any players would like to ask questions. It was good to see players and chat.

Please find below the results from the first day. All games can be accessed through the links provided.

Round 3 saw the head to head of Danny Roberts and new comer Tahmankar Mandar and an exciting game that went the full 3hours ending in a Draw. Good spectator chess. Oisin Cuilleanain is in a position to challenge the leaders and in fact shares the lead with Danny and Tahmankar. It should be an exciting Sunday. James O'Fee gets a good result against Modestas Razbadauskas.
