Club Champs Round 5

The race for the Club Champs is heating up with Round 5 played this week. Levi won over Andy to catch front-runner Ross. Both now lead on 4 points. Andrew also won over Geoffrey to catch Andy for a share of third place on 3 points.  With two rounds to go, the winner will almost certainly be one of these four. Latest results here.

The game of the night however, was Ross v John which played late into the evening. John some 300 rating points lower, played well to hold Ross to a draw, with John’s two knights more than a match for Ross’s two bishops in a tight endgame. Post-mortem analysis even suggesting that John had the winning position.
