Witney Rapid Play 2018 – Winner!!!

In the 4th appearance of the Witney Rapid play I managed to win the tournament with 4.5 points out 6. There were  5 players ending up with 4.5 points but better progressive score put me on the top. In terms of rating I was the 7th seed based on my ECF grade of 165. I don’t have a ECF rapid play grade as I didn’t play for 2 years in any Rapid events, (My last rapid rating was ECF 150).
