Club Championship round 2 results

Thursday 8 October, 2020

On 1st October, the second round of our online 2020 Club Championship was held on Tornelo.

Only three games took place on the night, with two games (between Robert Kender and Eric Eedle, and between Dev Ranka and Stanley Jacobs) delayed to 8th October.

Robert won his game to go into the sole lead, since David and Eugenia drew their game. Andrew Medworth also beat Gul Kapur with the White pieces, after both players had taken a Round 1 bye, so he joins David and Eugenia in the chasing pack on 1½. The only other decisive game saw Stanley get his first point.

With just two rounds played, the tournament is still wide open!

Well done to all the players, and thank you to Adam Raoof for organising!
