Summer Tournament with only 3 weeks of competition left

The standings, after 18 weeks of chess and only 3 weeks of competition left. Whos winning. Whos close - and a reminder that players need to play 2 out of the last 3 weeks...

We have had some brilliant chess over the summer. With a drop-in format so that players can just turn up and play - its always fun.

The view of cricket on the grounds of the social club adds to the summer evenings.

On week 18 we had  12 players and a couple of upsets. Robert Lavery was beating Chris Armstrong when suddenly Chris played a sacrifice that led to an attack and the winning back of some pawns - Chris went on to draw the game. Mean while Bobby Thompson beat David Ruben and David Seaby brought Stewart McConaghy to a pawn endgame that was close but Stewart Queened first and won the game. Barney McGahan drew against Roy Stafford a pawn up but with Rooks still on the board there was no way to force a win. Ciaran Rowan won against Jim McLean and he goes into the lead of the Junior section with a score of 70%.

We are not into the last 3 weeks - so the 3 week rules come into effect:

Rules
1. Players must complete 10 games to be considered for prizes.
2. If a player does not play in two of the last three rounds they will be assumed to have played and lost 2 games. If they play only one then they will forfeit one game.
3. However if a player has played 14 or more games then they are exempt from rule 2.
4. Scores will be calculated on a percentage basis.
