Congratulations to Scott Mulligan on becoming Rathmines Club Champion (Group A 1500+). Scott edged out Shahram Nikrow in an exciting rapid play-off after both finished tied on 4.5/6.
Both can take credit for excellent performances. Scott has become one of the youngest Rathmines Senior Club Champions in the 76 year history of the Freestone Cup. He joins legends such as International Master Mark Quinn (1992) and 3-time Irish Senior Champ David Dunne (1974) in this achievement at such a young age. Meanwhile, although Shahram led the tournament from start to finish only to fall at the final hurdle, he can’t be too disappointed with a 1921 performance and a gain of 44 rating points.
Here are the final standings:
|6 – 11||Lynch, Peter||1479||2.5|
