Zhuo Ren's turn at the event by Junior Tay

After showing how Michael Fernandez performed creditably at the Chester and Buxton Congress, now it's Lim Zhuo Ren's turn. Competing in the Gatwick Congress, Zhuo Ren ended up in a tie for 4th  place behind the eventual winner GM Keith Arkell (who outplayed Zhuo Ren in Rd 2)  and runners up GM Alexander Cherniaev and  IM Gediminas Sarakauskas. Zhuo Ren felt that he could have done better as he was pressing Alexander Galliano (2101) in the final round but just could not find the breakthrough. With his final 3.5/5 score, Zhuo Ren earned 10 more elo points. Here is a classy win by Zhuo Ren in Round 3.
