Exmouth Player Stars At Sunningdale

Last weekend, Exmouthian, Meyrick Shaw, shared 1st prize in the Major Section (U-175) of the prestigious e2-e4 chess congress at Northcote House, Sunningdale. He scored 4.5/5 points, as did the Nigerian Mustapha Othman, both sharing £450 in prizemoney. They drew in Rd. 4, having been in the sole lead, and went on to win their last round game. Meyrick’s tournament grade was 197 compared to his current standard grade of 168, which is surely bound to rise in the new list.

His games, together with all the others, are downloadable from the e2-e4 website.

The venue is Northcote House, an impressive neo-Georgian structure built in 1930, set in 65 acres of parkland.
