Had a great time at the British Rapidplay I ended up with 5/9. In the second round I played GrandMaster Matthew Sadler the Number One player in the UK graded 2693! and 2658 rapid!  I did eventually lose but enjoyed the experience. Matthew won the Rapidplay with 9/9! In the Rapidplay I beat Tom Brown the New 2018 British U1900 Champion which was a great game. Tom beat me in the 4th round in the U1900 section when I had 2.5/3 points so it was great to beat him with the black pieces! Had a great time in Hull looking forward to playing in the British Championships next year!
