Christy Paul faced his nemisis—Rick Lowe—keeping his cool, came away with a finely deserved win, arguably the winner of this game will be the winner of the 2009 B Grade title, as both players have been running neck and neck. Johnny Hynes continues to dominate the B grade. The game to watch in the A grade was between David Paul and Dennis Sosnosky—a gargantuan match—which ended in a draw, though both players had opportunites through the game. Mike O’Rorke continues his fine form and managed a draw against the tenacious Tim Roberts. Perhaps the ‘get out of jail’ card was handed to Guy Burns who scored an unexpected victory over Zoe Kingston after a shocking start.
Next week (02 September) the A grade will play out the last round of this series, and the B & C will contine their combined Swiss Round games.
09 September will be a catch-up night for the A grade. B & C will by as per normal.
16 September all the grades will begin a new series of games for the Club Championships.
