Doncaster Congress 2023

incorporating NCCU Individual Championships

 

 

NCCU President Tim Wall presents the Championship trophy to Virgil Szekely

 

 

and the Junior Championship trophy to Maksym Larchikov

 

The 2023 Doncaster Congress took place from 24th to 26th February 2023, at the usual venue of Hall Cross School.  Originally it was thought the event would be without a bookstall, but in the event one was arranged to be run by Howard Wood of Chess Essentials, on Saturday and Sunday (but not Friday). 

 

After pre-start withdrawals and “no shows”, there were the following numbers of entries to the four sections:

 

Open

Major

Inter

Minor

Total

NCCU Championship titles were won as follows:

Junior Championship:

Maksym Larchikov

Senior Championship:
