News about Mike Basman

Mike Basman was active at the Kingston Rapidplay, 28 July 2018 :

He scored 4 out of 6 with 4 wins and two losses. Beating IM Richard Bates in the last round he secured 3rd on tiebreak.
Here is a link to a picture from this event:

And another very recent chess news: in October 2018 Mike Basman will play in the invitation 10 round all play all in the Haarlem masters, not the open.

My thanks to IM Gerard Welling for the news.
