  GrahamClayton: Griffiths achieved a performance rating of 2526 at the recent Paris City Championships, where he won the prize for the best performance by a junior:

Apr-09-13  JustAnotherPatzer: I only knew of Griffiths 'on paper' during the 2011 British C'ship, a tourney i followed closely. I recall playing through some of his games at the time imagining him as an old hand, only now do i discover he was a junior. An impressive talent.

  Penguincw: FM Ryan Rhys Griffiths (Ryan-Rhys) recently played a game on against GM Rogelio Antonio (gmjoey1). Griffiths had black, and resigned. The time controls I believe were 3 0.
