Tim Sanders

Congratulations to Tim Sanders. 21 years after attending his first Golders Green Rapidplay tournament while at university he returned 5 years ago with the next generation of eager players. Rather than sitting on the side-lines he rediscovered his own passion for chess and was finally rewarded with an outright win.
