Ulster Intermediate and Junior Championships 2004

The Ulster Intermediate and Junior Championships were held on the weekend of 20 and 21 November 2004 at North Belfast Chess Club. The Intermediate was open to players rated between 1500 and 1900 and the Junior for those under 1500 and unrated. A disappointing number of entrants in the Intermediate event meant that the two sections had to be amalgamated.

ROUND 1

1 Ryszard Kaczorowski 	1:0 	Alex Beckett 
2 Ed Morgan 		0:1 	Calum Leitch 
3 Chris Kelly 		1:0 	Ananda Srinivasan
4 John Cahoon 		0:1 	Shane Keers 
5 Stewart Mc Conaghy 	1:0 	Geoff Hindley 
6 Leon Hulleman 	1:0 	Richard Proctor 
7 Martin Kelly 	1:0 	Ryan Murray 
8 David Seaby 		0:1 	David O' Donnell

ROUND 2

1 Stewart Mc Conaghy 	=:= 	Ryszard Kaczorowski
2 Calum Leitch 	1:0 	Martin Kelly 
3 David O' Donnell 	=:= 	Chris Kelly 
4 Shane Keers 		1:0 	Leon Hulleman 
5 Richard Proctor 	1:0 	John Cahoon 
6 Alex Beckett 	1:0 	Geoff Hindley 
7 Ryan Murray 		1:0 	Ed Morgan 
8 Ananda Srinivasan 	1:0 	David Seaby

ROUND 3

1 Shane Keers 		1:0 	Calum Leitch 
2 Ryszard Kaczorowski 	0:1 	David O' Donnell 
3 Chris Kelly 		0:1 	Stewart Mc Conaghy 
4 Ryan Murray 		1:0 	Richard Proctor 
5 Martin Kelly 	=:= 	Ananda Srinivasan
6 Leon Hulleman 	1:0 	Alex Beckett 
7 Geoff Hindley 	=:= 	Ed Morgan 
8 John Cahoon 		1:0 	David Seaby

After 3 Rounds the leading scores were Shane Keers (leading the Intermediate standings ) with 3.0 just ahead of Stewart McConaghy (leading the Junior standings) and David O'Donnell both on 2.5. Keers and McConaghy had both requested in advance of the tournament "travelling byes" for Round 4, and so each received half-a-point without playing in that round.

ROUND 4

1 David O' Donnell 	=:= 	Leon Hulleman 
2 Calum Leitch 	1:0 	Ryan Murray 
3 Ananda Srinivasan 	0:1 	Ryszard Kaczorowski
4 Chris Millar 	1:0 	Chris Kelly 
5 Ed Morgan 		0:1 	Martin Kelly 
6 Alex Beckett 	1:0 	John Cahoon 
7 Richard Proctor 	1:0 	Geoff Hindley

Keers was now leading with 3.5 from Calum Leitch, O'Donnell and McConaghy on 3.0

ROUND 5

1 David O' Donnell 	1:0 	Shane Keers 
2 Calum Leitch 	1:0 	Stewart Mc Conaghy
3 Ryszard Kaczorowski 	1:0 	Chris Millar 
4 Martin Kelly 	0:1 	Leon Hulleman 
5 Ryan Murray 		0:1 	Alex Beckett 
6 Ananda Srinivasan 	0:1 	Richard Proctor 
7 David Seaby 		0:1 	Ed Morgan 
8 Geoff Hindley 	0:1 	John Cahoon

Going into the final round the leaders were O'Donnell and Leitch on 4.0 followed by Keers, Leon Hulleman (who was now in the lead in the Junior) and Ryszard Kaczorowski on 3.5. There were three players on 3.0 - McConaghy, Alex Beckett and Richard Proctor - all of whom could still win the Junior.

ROUND 6

1 David O' Donnell 	1:0 	Calum Leitch 
2 Leon Hulleman 	0:1 	Stewart Mc Conaghy 
3 Shane Keers 		1:0 	Ryszard Kaczorowski 
4 Richard Proctor 	1:0 	Alex Beckett 
5 Chris Millar 	=:= 	Martin Kelly 
6 John Cahoon 		=:= 	Ryan Murray 
7 Chris Kelly 		1:0 	David Seaby 
8 Ed Morgan 		1:0 	Ananda Srinivasan
