Another Malahide raider
Kevin O'Neill also ventured south to compete at Malahide - in the Challengers (under 1600) section. Kevin has only been playing competitive chess for about 2 years, but has already won a tournament - the Fisherwick 50th Jubilee Handicap, where he made good use of his time advantage in every game.
With a rating of only 919, Kevin could be expected to find it hard going at Malahide, but he punched well above his weight scoring 3 points from 6 games against much higher rated opposition, including draws against players rated 1224 and 1315.
