Following hard on the heels of our recent successes in the League, 25 players turned out to play in our Bonfire Night Blitz.
Hendon’s Cristian Mures (winning £20) and visitor Jonathan Rona (from Australia, £20) 5½/6, emerged victorious; Rona had the better of their individual encounter, but lost on time in a winning position. Cristian had a bare king. Result: draw!
The Hendon Fiver(s) went to Salvatore Pepe (£5) and new Hendon members Isaac Sanders (£5) and Tim Rogers (£5).
