Club update – 11 April
Last night was a catchup night for the juniors, and a further two rounds of the T1 Blitz competition was played. Isaiah remains out in front with 6½ point from 7, although he was pushed hard by Elane in round 7, who held the advantage for most of the game but was unable to convert the endgame. Devin is now in solo second place only a half point back. As some of the leading contenders were away due to the holiday, they received a half point bye for each round they missed. The tournament will conclude on the first week of term 2 (25th April), with a final two rounds followed by prize giving.
In the seniors, it was Round 2 of 6 in the Kingston Memorial (see photo). After two rounds, Gordon and Ross lead on 2 from 2, and Guy next with 1½ and most of the rest of the pack on 1. David S fought out a good game with David P, eventually losing on time in a drawn position. Results and standings here.
Next week there is no junior club, since it is school holidays, but in the senior club we look forward to hosting the Upper Hutt Club in an inter-club friendly.
