The University College Cork tournament took place on the 15th and 16th of November. The venue for this year was once again the Mardyke Pavillion. The format was a handicap Swiss, which offers up the chance to the lower ranked players to win the event. However, it was the highest ranked player taked part, Philippe Renaut (2-dan) who took home the honours, winning all of his 5 games. In second place was Gerry Gavigan, a UK player who was visiting the tournament. Taking third place on tiebreak was organiser Thomas Shanahan. Although the turnout could have been bigger, it was encouraging to see some new players taking part, particularly we might note the players travelling from Galway.
