|Bristol & District Chess League||
22 January 2011
Eleven events subscribed to the Grand Prix this year (an increase of two from the previous year) and of those five were League based and six were Club based and my thanks to the organizers, both for running the events and for including them in the Grand Prix.
This year the sections were divided by grade, and the resulting effect has been positive with a fairly similar number of players qualified for each section and as such I am keeping the structure the same for the new season.
The inclusion of extra events has meant that the prize fund has increased slightly from the previous season to £327.00, which in turn has meant an increase in the prize money.
Over the year 116 League members from 16 clubs and schools competed in the eleven events on 278 occasions scoring a total of 4483.5 Grand Prix points. Thirteen players scored 100 points or more (up from last year’s 7) and of these thirteen, three passed 150 points and one made it past 200.

Open 1st James Sherwin Bath £45.00
