Congratulations to Andrew McGrath on winning the Rathmines Intermediate Club Championships, after an exciting play-off with Nick Scallan. In the regular event both finished tied on 4/6. They played off in rapid and blitz games for the title and the right to play in the senior section next year. The rapid games were tied, but Andrew won the blitz games to secure the title.
This is some achievement for Andrew, who won the Junior Section last year. He’s continued to improve since then and amply demonstrated that he’s a much better blitz player than he gives himself credit for.
