One of the first dividends of working with Welshbase has been an examination of results against Grandmasters

First against we have 8 results - all draws! Almost all of these came in an India-Wales Friendly in 2015 where the general approach was to take easy draws for the rating points!

Moving onto ICCF-GM - we have 68 games with a combined record of 7 wins, 49 draws and 10 losses, so 48% in Total. However, this hides a number of other facts:

5 players have positive scores against Grandmasters, with a further 4 on 50%

3 players have more than 10 games against Grandmasters (when FIDE games are taken into account) 

From this the conclusion, the potential for a Welsh ICCF-GM at some point in the future looks positive!
