Williamson Shield

Played 25-26 January 2003. Brief report and final standings.

Tom Clarke and Stephen Scannell finished equal first in the Williamson Shield, drawing their individual encounter in round 3 and winning all their other games. Ian Woodfield, who was 3rd equal with Paul McLoughlin, won the Grading Prize.

In the Challengers, Ciaran Marron started with 4.5 out of 5 to go a full point ahead of the rest of the field. However a final round loss to David Grzymek (who won the Grading Prize) allowed Alex Beckett and Sean Linton to catch Marron and share first prize with him.

The Novices competition - a Rapidplay event held only on the second day of competition - was won by Chris Millar, with a perfect 8 points from his 8 games.
