The E. Devon Congress Gets Under Way (24.02.2018.)

The East Devon Congress got under way smoothly at 7 p.m. on Friday 24th February, with an entry of 137, somewhat down on last year when the bait of John Nunn’s entry lured in a number of players, but still a higher entry than the years before that. The Open Section numbered 50, of whom 19 were graded 180 or higher. Top seed Jack Rudd is well clear of the field, but who else will be taking home winners’ cheques is anyone’s guess.
