World Senior Championship – Greece
The World Senior Championship took place in the Greek resort of Kamena Vourla from November 12-24, 2012.
Scotland was represented by IM Craig Pritchett, FM Philip Giulian, Alastair White and Alan Borwell.
IM Craig Pritchett of Dunbar finished 13th of 106 players in the 22nd World Seniors Championship. The highlight was a “chaotic” (according to Craig) win in the penultimate round against reigning seniors champion GM Vladimir Okhotnik of France. Pritchett, 63, needed a final round win against pre-event favourite GM Anatoly Vaisser to take 3rd place but slipped to defeat – it was still an impressive performance. Danish IM Jens Kristiansen took the title with an unbeaten 9/11.
