"Dear Adam,

This was my first ever chess tournament (since the London Boys in 1952!) and I wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team. I thoroughly enjoyed myself on Saturday and hope to join in on other occasions."

Congratulations to Grandmaster Matthew Sadler, who won the first prize of £1,000 with 5.5/6.  Grandmaster Mark Hebden finished second with 5/6 and won £500.

Here is a list of FIDE registered tournaments in England. There will be a separate entry for each section of each event (e.g. Golders Green Rapidplay = 4 sections, 4 registrations). If you see any of mine missing, do let me know! 

Scroll down to the bottom to access the archive of events. 

Only games where at least one of the players has a published standard FIDE rating will be rated, and included in the rating calculations of the unrated player. Where both players are rated, the game will affect both players and will be included in the calculations for both players.
