A special mention must go to a new player, Tom Stamper who played Bob Holmes. Their match was very close and Bob had to play particularly careful to make sure he won. Bob was very impressed the way Tom played and is one to watch for the future.
Mike Donnelly, on his return to the club, secured a hard fought win over Paul Sweatman. Another new player, David Adams also played very well against Dave Filer and could quite easily have secured a draw at one point in the game.
As the tournament is a Swiss, next round you will be playing someone with the same number of points as yourself, so a fresh challenge for all players next time!
