Play continued in the John Kingston Memorial 55+5 tournament, with our first standard rated night of the year. Again, the round yielded no surprises, with higher-rated players continuing to win across the board. The next round should see several more interesting match-ups at all levels, as similarly-rated players are beginning to be grouped together in the brackets. Ross Jackson, Alan Winfield, David Paul and Gordon Lyall currently share the top position. Full results here. In addition, Paul Frost beat junior player Valera to climb higher on the ladder.
