The home of chess in Galway
The 2021 Online Galway Congress was won convincingly by FM Robin Moss with 6½ points. Second equal, on 5½ points, were Jason Liu, Adam McCoy and Atharva Paibir. Atharva would also have been eligible for a rating prize, but under the ‘one prize’ rule he has to be satisfied with a very deserved second place. Rating prizes went to Alex Wall (Band A) on 5 points; Kyle Milligan and Killian Gavin (Band B), 4½; and Conor Gunn, Markus Senzel, Pete Donlon and Marek Fijalkowski, (Band C) all on 3 points.
