Simon Warfield is the 2011 BCF U2200 Champion

Simon Warfield won the 2011 Reubens Landey tournament, making him the U2200 BCF Champion. He had 4 of 4 points - he mated Ted Cross with about 2 seconds on his clock after he broke a very tense, seemingly drawn position in the rook and pawns endgame.

Simon has won the Reubens Landey and title in 2011, 2008, 2004, 2002, 2000.

His rating moved to 2192 after this tournament. He has come close to achieving master status over the years. Oddly, his highest rating - 2200 (P5) - came as his first rating after playing in the 1994 New England Masters as "unrated."

Congratulations Simon.
