2022 Leo Eichholtz Winner

It was a close finish as expected in the final two rounds of our first Club tournament for the year. Congratulations to Gordon Lyall who took out the honours, but not before a determined fight by recent newcomer Levi Paxton, pushing him hard in the last game of the evening to finish. Geoffrey Gunawan needed a win in the final round for a potential share of first place, but Lars Dobbertin-King denied him that, in what was perhaps the game of the evening. With the exchange down, Geoffrey sacked another exchange, in an attempt to press home an ominous pawn storm closing in on Lars’ King. In the end, Lars was able to hold it off for the eventual win, to go with his previous round win over a time-deprived Ross Jackson. After leading through most of the tournament, Ross finished in second place, with Geoffrey completing the podium in third place.
