The last week of play for the Summer Tournament

The last round of the Summer tournament has come. Whos winning, has there been any movement on the leaders? Dont forget the prize-giving and fun tournament on 30th Sept.

Two weeks have passed since our last update. Alot can happen in two weeks.

Week one saw some upsets and the order of players changed.

In the lower section Paddy Magee was beaten by Roy Stafford and his lead was cut to approx. 2% 62.5% against David Seaby's 60.53%. Also with chances was David Seaby who lost to Adrian Dornford-Smith, David was ahead but blundered a piece and Adrian brought the point home. David having played more games than Paddy lost less % points.

In the Upper section Nicholas Pilkiewiecz increased his lead with a win over Ian Woodfield. Ray Devenney had a good position against Stephen Rush, but they agreed a draw. Stephen showed Ray a winning combination that had been missed.

In the middle section, Robert Lavery overtook William Storey by beating Stephen Critchlow and David Ruben stayed in contention with a win over Matthew Chapman. At this stage we had Robert on 66.67%, William Storey on 65% closely followed by David Ruben on 62.5%

Week two (Last week) saw some deciding games. Gareth Annesley could catch Nicholas Pilkiewicz but Gareth couldn't afford to drop a point. He was paired against Stephen Rush who with the exchange against a couple of well advanced pawns won a tight and time-short endgame. Nicholas with 80% looks set to win the tournament.

In the middle section Robert Lavery was given a tough pairing against Ian Woodfield - the game was drawn a good result for Robert. And with William Storey loosing to Criag Stevenson (a relatively newcomer to the competition) Roberts lead was increased.

In the lower section the fight got closer with Adrian rising by beating Derek Trusedale and Paddy Magee and David Seaby drawing. So they are all within 2% points. So a tough call.

The current standings - this doesn't include any negative points calculated from the 3 week rule (this will be calculated at the end of the tournament).
