I managed to finish joint first in the Letchworth Challengers section. I was ranked 31 out of 32 players in the U170 section. With 40 minutes each on the clock however, the time control seemed to suit me as that's a similar pace I play at in the longer time controls!

I went along to support a student of mine who was competing in the Minor section and my personal goal was "to make myself difficult to beat". Clearly, the plan worked better than I could hope for as I made myself "impossible to beat!" Two draws and three wins gave me a share of first prize.
