Stuart Wilson Trophy

 

Round 6 results:

Martin Laizans 0 Andrew Mather 1

Tony Morris Andrew Robinson

 

Round 6 was completed on a quiet night, with just three players coming besides those in the two tournament games.

 

The night was significant nevertheless as the two titles on offer during this tournament were decided tonight.

 

Martin played strongly, but not as strongly as his opponent Andrew Mather who wrapped up the game shortly after 9:00pm to maintain a perfect record.

 

The other match was an intense duel that required Andrew Robinson to defend accurately during the middle game, then move to equilibrium and slightly better when a draw was agreed when three-fold repetition was about to be enacted. The game can be viewed here: Tony Morris vs Andrew Robinson.

 

The draw means Andrew Mather cannot be caught in the last round, and thus retains the title he shared with Cameron De Vere last year and won outright in 2014.

The draw also lifted Tony Morris out of reach of the other players eligible to win the Maiden Trophy, meaning that Tony has won the tournament won by his son Joshua last year.

What are the chances Adam Morris will win the Maiden Trophy in 2017?
