Michael Adams wins Bunratty Masters 2013

Super-GM Michael Adams won the Masters Section of the Bunratty Festival 2013. With this edition, the tournament celebrated 20 years of chess.

As in every year the tournament was divided into four sections, Minor (for beginners), Major (intermediate), Challengers (advanced) and Masters (for the top national and international players).

To win the Masters, Adams got 5 straight wins and a draw in the last round. GM Nigel Short and IM Richard Bates tied on second place with 5/6; Short took the second place on tie-breaks.

Parallel to the Masters, the Bunratty Classic tournament took place for the first time. This event had the purpose of helping the Irish players get IM and GM norms.

GM Mark Hebden finished in sole first place after scoring an undefeated score of 7/9.
