I took the risk of playing in the Rapidplay Championship on Friday evening. I say 'risk' because, had It affected my play for England, then I would have opened myself up for criticism. However, I'm happy to say that I won the rapidplay, and have a score of 4 wins and 3 draws ( all vs GMs ) on top board for my country. Here is a link to the rapidplay:

Hopefully, although we seem to have blown Gold, we are very likely to come away with silver - ironically the same medal our best team from the 80s often ended up with.

From the final results I see England came second. Excellent performance by Terry Chapman. Did he get a board prize if those were awarded?
