Thanks to all those who played tonight. The results are as follows...
The U1350 event saw an excellent victory for FlatUpbeatFalcon, who despite somehow managing to avoid playing in the 3rd round (???) managed to win his other 3 games to finish with three points. In second and third places were SillyLimit and LeftGroovyUnicorn. Congratulations to SillyLimit on his best ever finish - very well played. You can see his checkmate in Round 1 below in tonight's chess problem.
