In his latest report Malcolm Clarke highlights the rise of promising young player James Daas following his impressive Summer Tournament results.
James Daas has been confirming his promise in the Chandlers Ford chess tournament by beating former champion David Culliford. After being given a half point bye in the first round he has won all three games since then and in the final round will play the only other player with 3.5 points or over who will be either Phil Overton or Peter Przybycin. Also in the tournament Dick Meredith moved on to 3 points with victory against Keven Lamb.
The AGM of the Chandlers Ford Chess club is expected to be held on the 17th September and the club’s first match of the new season is expected to be played in the following week.
