Murray on fire!!

Murray Liu, one of our top juniors, played in the Dublin International Open this weekend. Naturally this is a tournament for experienced adults, used to playing long time control games, at the top of their sport. We had a lot of visitors from Iceland, UK and so forth for this prestigious International event.

Murray Liu, of Blanchardstown Chess club, was on fire! A slow start against very highly rated players (1800 plus opposition!) gave Murray an idea of what the standard was like. A very tough event! However, Murray got used to playing these strong players and blasted his way through the opposition with an amazing winning streak (4 wins in a row!). He ended up with a rating performance in excess of 1700!

Murray also ended up winning the rating prize, ahead of a multitude of experienced adult players!

His club is super proud of him. Well done Murray!
