CONGRATULATIONS to Ron King. I guess this year's triumph at the
Irish Open may be his greatest triumph in tournament play here in Europe,
considering the enormous strengths of this year's event.
Also congratulations to my friend Bernard Coll, who won the Seniors. I always thought he is a senior force.
Congratulations to John McElhone, the new Irish champion, who outperformed some grandmasters and many very, very strong masters.
Congratulations to Michael Shabshai, who showed that his fine Performances in Prague and Beijing were no one-day wonders.
Also congratulations to my friend Filip, who is a fine player and will be a growing force in the future.
There are a lot of young talents like Filip in Europe, and they also deserve their chances.
Referee: Jim Somers ably assisted by Peader
