The 61st Hertfordshire Congress took place last weekend at the County Hall in Hertford. There were 108 entrants across four graded sections. Ten members from Suffolk-based clubs competed. The following tables show current (Jan 2013) grade, points scored (out of 5), and grading performance. Eligibility for the graded sections was based on the July 2012 grades. An asterisk after the score indicates that it includes a full-point bye.
|Chris Davison||177||Cambridge City / Bury St Edmunds||3½||213|
|Shaun Munson||206||Ipswich / Bury St Edmunds||3||207|
|Ian Wallis||174||Ipswich / Bury St Edmunds||2½||188|
|Stephen Pride||153||Cambridge City / Bury St Edmunds||3||179|
|Philip Hutchings||160||Manningtree / Clacton||2*||128|
|David Wood||19||Bury St Edmunds||1*||9|
Of the above, only Chris Davison achieved any prize money. As runner-up in the Open section, he won £88, which included the u180 grading prize.
