Report by Colin Macgregor:

There were 64 entries in Sunday’s Renfrewshire Open, the first OTB event in Scotland since March 2020. There were 16 entries in the Open. This was a close event, with surprises throughout. Going into the last round, six players could have won the event. The last round paired 11 year old Freddie Gordon playing 17 year old Jake Sanger for first prize. Freddie won the game, and shared first prize with Prateek Wadhwa of Glasgow University on 4½/5. Third place was shared by Mark and Jake Sanger and Austin Connor of Polytechnic, who won the grading prize.

20 people played in the Major. Again another close event, with a two way tie for first, between juniors Ross Blackford (Dunbar) and Aryan Munshi (Phones) on 4½, with Alistair Ahmed (Renfrew) in third place on 4/5.

The Minor had an entry of 30 players, with a large number of new players (13 ungraded players) and juniors (24 juniors out of 60 players). Again this went down to the wire. Aiden McInally and Peter Knak sharing first with 4½/5. Four players finished on 4/5- Elliot Lawrence, Supratit Banerjee, Tusher Roul, and Alistair Muirhead.

Congratulations to Glasgow University and Lenzie Chess Academy, who provided very large numbers of players, and to Phil Thomas, Billy, Caitlin and Aimi Reid, Alan Jelfs, Richard Cochrane and Mike Hanley for helping beforehand and on the day.
