28th Welsh Open Won by Peikai Xue

Welsh Open
Sat, 25 - Sun, 26 Jun 2022

The Welsh Open returned for its 28th edition on the 25th and 26th June. The venue was once more the Min Y Mor Hotel in Barmouth, which gives the chance to stay on site, to socialise over the Saturday evening dinner or to quickly pop to the beach and enjoy the weather. A total of 22 players came to play including a number from South Wales, North West and South West England and further away. Top player this year was London’s Peikai Xue (3d) who won all six games, shown here receiving prizes and the Brian Timmins Plaque from organiser Martin Harvey. Equal second were Cardiff’s Dylan Carter (1d) and Leicester’s Toby Manning (1d). Bjorn Eurenius (8k Lancaster) won five games and Lucas Horton (9k), Pat Ridley (11k Chester) and Kieran Moore (14k Cardiff) each won four games. In addition Louise Bremner (2k Bristol) got a prize as top kyu player. This year, thanks to Dylan’s efforts organisers Helen and Martin Harvey were able to announce that prizes and discounts were being provided by Go Magic and a free trial was available from AI Sensei, both sponsors being thanked for their support.
