Flood Cup

 

Round 6 results:

Andrew Robinson ˝ Marcus Porter ˝

Andrew Mather vs Russell Lyons – postponed

Tony Howes 1 Sanat Kunwar 0

Ray Adams 1 Martin Laizans 0

Kieran Lyons 1 Warren Mayocchi 0

Brian Willcock 1 John Ryland 0

 

The last of tonight’s five games to finish was the top board game in which Marcus had the ascendancy for much of it.

However he overlooked a deficiency in his pawn structure when the game reached a rook endgame, and had to force a draw by a repetition of moves.

 

Ray continued his resurgence, having now won three consecutive games after losing his first three in this tournament.

 

On a good night for players with the white pieces, Tony, Kieran and Brian also won.
