Stuart Wilson Trophy

 

Results:

Russell Lyons 1 Jack Badenhorst 0 (Round 2)

Tony Howes 1 Brian Willcock 0 (Round 6)

Martin Laizans ˝ Greg Colwell ˝ (Round 7)

 

Brian provides this week’s report:

I lost an interesting game to Tony. I was attacking and set up a position where Tony could not play a pawn fork that might appear on the cards. When Tony took a piece (recoverable). the pawn fork seemed achievable and my position ruined. After tearing out my remaining hair I finally resigned - an act that Tony and Greg demonstrated was premature, even if Tony gained the edge.

 

Russell beat Jack to consolidate his position in third place.

 

Greg and Martin played out a draw which improves their mid-table positions, and continues an interesting battle for the Maiden Trophy.
