The Catalan Chess Federation hosted a Four Nation competition between Scotland, Catalonia, the Basque Country and Argentina in Barcelona, December 15 -17. Scotland defeated the Basques in the final round to deprive them of first place. Edward Dearing, who still needs to hit 2400 to be confirmed as an IM, scored Scotland's only victory in an exciting final round game.
