Results from todays CSC Competition
A fabulous day at the Christmas chess event at Ashton with around 50 players, we had 12 competing.
Gutted I didn't win the most important prize of all (the Christmas jumper prize) but one of our players did, Adam Hamer magnificent jumper with warming winter fire attached. Never any doubt!!!
Lawrence scored his best ever 3.5 out of 5 and notable draw v winner Dawn Supatan.
Nathan Li played very well to score 3 out of 5.
Ethan after a slow start came good with an excellent 2.5.
Sithun and Shawn score 2 points after excellent starts.
Adam scored 1 point but he is giving all opponents good, tough games.
Well done to Dylan Crothers on taking 2nd place overall after rescuing a seemingly lost position in round 6, scoring 5 out of 6
Patrick Shaw again in the first 3 places for the 3rd consecutive competition and would have finished higher if he hadn't messed up a castling move in round 5. He scored 4.5 out of 6.
Kyle Dissanayake scored an excellent 4.5 and lost 3rd place on a tiebreak.
Leon Li also played really well scoring 4 out of 6
The highlight for me was the performance of newcomer Leon Walker with a fabulous 3.5 out of 6 (our next future star I reckon!).
Jess Caton had a lovely day but may be a touch disappointed with her 3 out of 6.
