Review of ICC 2017

Sun, 15/10/2017 - 12:26

The Irish Correspondence Championship of 2017 had a reduced field, but there was no reduction in the intensity of the competition. Finishing in first place was Irina Davis with 6 wins from 7. There was a threeway tie for second place between Noel Mitchell, Philippe Renaut, and Piotr Gawron. Read on to see some of the key games between these 4.

Perhaps the most unexpected result was Piotr defeating Philippe

Irina and Noel had an interesting game which saw the lead change hands several times
