Apologies for the delay in posting these - I'm still recovering from yesterday's michaeluriely.org rapidplay (160+ players!).  The next GGRP is on the 3 June, but in the mean time you can play at Muswell Hill on Saturday 20th May...

PS if you ever want to find the crosstables for these events and all the other tournaments I get involved with, google "chess results golders green", etc.
