Daniel F gains 21 points from 3 tourneys, Edward Lee in Amsterdam: by Junior Tay

Daniel Fernandez and his brother Michael  have been living out of suitcases for the past month, playing 3 European tournaments on a go. In his last tourney in Paleochora, Greece, after Round 7, he was really fatigued as he had  played 18 consecutive games with only one rest day. Despite having scored 4.5/7 by then, he decided to take a break from the last two rounds to recharge his battery. For his efforts from the 3 events (e2e4 Buxtom,  Rethymo, and Paleochora), he had moved up to FIDE 2370, a massive 21.4 points gain. Daniel continues his European chess sourjourn next week in the Sommer A event at Baden Baden, Germany.

Meanwhile, Edward Lee scored 4/9 in the 2e Science Park Schaaktoernooi - group A event to prop up his rating by 2.55 points to reach FIDE 2129. Here is a mature effort by him in that event.
