Report 29 August 2008

 

Allegro tournament

 

Results:

Kieran Lyons 2 Mark Taylor 0

Russell Lyons 1.5 Greg Colwell 0.5

Andrew Robinson 2 Josh Ford 0

Kieran Lyons 1.5 Andrew Robinson 0.5

 

Kieran started well in the Allegro tournament, clean-sweeping Mark, and then getting the better of Andrew in a match-up that saw last years first play second place getters in action. Against Andrew, Kieran ground out an inevitable victory with white after catching a central pawn with her attack better co-ordinated. The second game ended in a draw with opposite coloured bishops.

 

It was a good night all round for the Lyons family with Russell taking a win and a draw off Greg.

Stuart Wilson Trophy

 

Result (Round 7):

John Roper 1 Peter Ford 0

 

Maiden Trophy play-off:

Nathan Shaw 1 Brendan Griffen 0 (on forfeit)

 

Peter pressed early but a single move set back his cause and John won well with his slow methodical play. This meant that after a great start of two points from two games, Peter unfortunately finished the tournament on two points.

 

Brendan declined the opportunity to contest the Maiden Trophy play-off match, so all of the glory does to Nathan (who feels justified in collecting it due to his better tie-break).
