McMaster Matchplay

Richard McMaster had the idea of bringing together Ulster’s top players in a matchplay format. Originally planned to be run on a knock-out basis, the event was changed into a double round all-play-all. Each player had half an hour on his clock and some hard fought and fascinating chess was produced in what is probably the strongest rapidplay event ever held in Ulster.
