The club’s most prestigious tournament, the Flood Cup, has commenced and the upsets began in round one. Paul Evans has entered the tournament often, but never managed to reach his full potential. This time though, he has started well by defeating 2nd seed George Flitcroft-Smith in Round 1 with his English Opening. In other games, veteran Brian Willcock’s maverick style was not enough to overcome Harvey Quaresmini (moves 23 & 24 were his undoing), and Peter Hiller managed to survive an early onslaught from Stuart Wilson’s over advanced queen. James Hiller’s drought continued against Doug Foster.
