Report – 22 October 2004

 

Allegro tournament

 

Eight series of two games were played tonight, as well as two single games to finish incomplete sets of two. Also, Stuart Holt and John Curran confirmed that they had played two weeks ago and neglected to report it to the DOP.

 

Tony dropped his first game of the tournament in the first of two closely fought games with Ray. This encounter seemed to take the steam out of Ray’s sails as he lost all four games to Debbie and Harvey.

 

Most of the other games went to form, although Marty had a good night taking wins off both Harvey and Debbie, while John took games off Marty and Brian.

 

Results:

Stuart H 2 John 0 (from 2 weeks ago)

George 2 Stuart H 0

Tony 1 Ray 1

Debbie 2 Stuart W 0

John 1 Marty 1

Brian 1 John 1

Harvey 1 Marty 1
