Laurens 1st in Belfast 2012

belfast 2012

Third time's a charm. After a 2nd place in 2009 and a 6th place in 2011, now a 1st place in this years Belfast tournament.

with just under 20 participants it was a little bit smaller than last year. The start was great with a win against Ian Davis[2d] and Claas Roever[2k]. Sunday stater just as good, with wins against Rory Wales[2k] and James Hutchinson[1d]. But then in the last round Jakub (Kubba) Flasz[6k] managed to win. Fortunately 4-5 was still enough for the 1st place in the final ranking.

On Saturday evening most of us went into town, getting dinner at a Thai restaurant, and some beers in a pub afterwards. On Sunday, after the tournament, I caught ride to Dublin with Rory. After a couple more days in Dublin it's time to get back home to The Netherlands to be on time for the Delfts Tournament next weekend.
