After the second to last night of the John Kingston Memorial Trophy, Paul Frost and Zoe Kingston continue to share the lead — on six points — after wining their games. Paul easily won after Guy Burns crumbled in the mid-game. Zoe’s game was also quickly over. David Paul stands alone at second on 5 points, followed by a field of four on 4 points. In the Reserve Grade, Rick Lowe and Tricia Benny were both absent, but continue to lead the field, based on a solid foundation of previous wins. Rick on 7 points leads ahead of Tricia and Chris Carr on 5 points. Next week is the last night of this competition and will determine the final result.
On 24 June we have round three of our five round Blitz Trophy — come along for a fun night of rapid chess. The following week our Club Champs are scheduled to start. David Paul will prepare a draft plan for the tournament and bring this along on 17 June.
