Michael Club Champion For 2013. Hilton And Stefan Share Second Place

Posted: 05/06/2013 by Ian in Club News

RatingWith Hilton absent this week Michael went into the last round secure in the knowledge that he had an unassailable lead, ending up with 7 out of a possible 8 points, and has now had his name immortalized on the Champions Board. Stefan and Hilton shared second place on 5.5 points. Credit to Stefan as the only person to take points off Michael with a draw in round 2. Daniel’s chess has come ahead in leaps and bounds this year (oh to be young again), dropping only three points and taking out clear fourth on 5 points – maybe next year he will be on the podium at the end. Graham next on 4.5, ahead of a large group sharing 4 points, and then the also-rans. Once again the lament for most us (dreamers) will be “Next year, next year, next year I will do better in the club champs!!!!!”. Pleasing to note this year we managed a healthy 21 starters (even if many of them weren’t able to play in all rounds) compared to only 12 starters for the club champs last year. The crosstable, summary statistics, and individual statistics have all been updated on their respective pages.
