Local player John Cooper scored a win in the Open over GM Mark Hebden.
Mate Ther of Harrogate scored a win over higher-rated Neil Bradbury.
Another interesting game from John Cooper was his last-round loss to David Maycock. It may be that both players were in time trouble, as Black seemed not to find the best move at the end. Was not 36. … Bxe5 best and easily winning? White seemed to be able to stay in the game with 37. Nf7+ at the end, but the game was chalked up as “0-1” without White making his 37th move. Perhaps White lost on time and that detail was not recorded in the PGN file.
