One problem was received, but was found out to be faulty. (It may have been
corrected and published later, which the chess editor suggested,
but so far it has not been identified definitely.)
The tourney was announced during the already ongoing tourney by Burnley Express (announced May 1 to close August 1), which might have affected participation.
