Stuart Wilson Trophy

 

Round 5 results:

Peter Hiller 0 Joshua Morris 1

Tony Morris 0 Martin Laizans 1

 

Other results:

Warren Mayocchi 1 Brian Willcock 0 (Round 2)

Andrew Robinson 1 James Hiller 0 (Round 2)

Jim Petrie 0 Andrew Mather 1 (Round 11)

 

Two games finished before 9am, and the other three were closer and went to a 10pm finish, or close to it.

 

James played well and was a temporary pawn up by move 10. With the pawn given back, he could have reach an equal position, but blundered (after returning to the board from 5 minutes away) and lost a piece, and the game was simplified after that to a quick win for white.

 

Tony had the longest game of the night and seemed to be in a winning position, but lost his momentum during time trouble and allowed the more experienced Martin to retrieve a win.

 

Peter and Joshua both played slowly, and the game was even until Peter conceded a piece. An oversight when in a totally won position gave Peter the piece back, and with accurate play Peter might have forced a draw being a pawn down. However Joshua played the final moves out well to claim his first win of the tournament.

 

George Valenci also put in an appearance and played a few games with Ray Adams.
