We conclude our coverage of the 2019 English Women’s Championship with a gallery from various rounds of the tournament.
Congratulations to WFM Louise Head and WGM Katarzyna Toma on sharing first place in very dramatic fashion (more detail on that aspect will follow in my article for CHESS Magazine).
The picture above was taken just before the start of the final round and, despite the palpable tension of the title race, Sarah Longson, Louise Head, Rayelynn Posadas and Katarzyna Toma were still more than able to give the camera warm smiles.
Congratulations too to the organisers (especially Stephen Greep and Chris Fegan) and to all of the other players and personnel who made the event such a huge and important success.
I felt extremely honoured to be a part of this very special event.
See you all again next year...!?
