Flood Cup 2002

 

Results:

Andrew Robinson 1 Doug Foster 0 (from Round 3)

Gabriel Boross 1 Brian Willcock 0 (from Round 9)

 

Two games were played tonight. Gabby defeated Brian earlier in the night after a bishop sac at move 22 that went awry. In the other game, Doug seemed to have the initiative with a well placed rook and could certainly have forced a draw after move 29. Then a mistake by black at move 37 let Andrew back into a game that took over 3 hours to complete.

45 Minute Tournament

 

Results:

Ben Lazarus 1 Nathaneal Lim 0

Stuart Wilson 0 Ben Lazarus 1

 

Strong junior player Ben Lazarus won twice tonight in this tournament. The first game against Nathaneal was over so quickly that it afforded him the chance of a second game. Stuart, back from his 2 week sojourn in NZ, resisted in his game for quite a while but succumbed after losing too much material.
