BUNRATTY INTERNATIONAL CHESS FESTIVAL: 25th ANNIVERSARY

Bunratty Castle Hotel, County Clare, Ireland

February 23-25, 2018

35 players from Northern Ireland competed in last year's Bunratty, Ireland's largest international chess festival. There were a total of 333 players across all 4 sections, and with this year marked as the 25th anniversary, entry numbers could well break the records! An impressive selection of past winners have already enrolled and highlights include Grandmasters Peter Svidler (2765), Nigel Short (2678), Gawain Jones (2654), Luke McShane (2640), Sergey Tiviakov (2583), Jonathan Speelman (2507), Alexander Baburin (2458), Simon Williams (2453), Mark Hebden (2445) and Peter Wells (2441). They are joined by two Woman Grandmasters, Dina Belenkaya (2303) and Alina L'Ami (2301). Meanwhile, the list of International Masters also offers an exciting mix with Sam Collins (2450), Richard Bates (2378), Thomas Rendle (2362), Mark Heidenfeld (2360) and Malcolm Pein (2349). FIDE Masters David Fitzsimons (2312) and Colm Daly (2301) will sit alongside two Woman International Masters, Fiona Stella-Antoni (2198) and Sue Mororoa Jones (2111). It promises to be an amazing Masters section!
