For the first time, the event was run over just two days not three.

 

Again for the first time, pairings were done by computer (Swiss Manager)

for which the congress is grateful to Simon Scott of Nottingham for his assistance.

 

Results in the form of final tournament cross-tables can be found here or from the result-archive page.

 

A bookstall was kindly provided by Howard Wood of Chess Essentials.
