Round 5 update

Hi All,

There is just one result to report from the fifth round this week, but it is a significant one. Steve Saunders beat John Kooner in the minor section. This means that John has dropped his first point in the tournament, and now there are just two players unbeaten on five points; Maha Chandar and Nobby George. John has a chance to fight back however, as he has still to play either Maha or Nobby in the tournament. In fact, he is paired against Nobby in round six!

Current scores:

Minor Section:

  • Nobby George 5/5
  • Maha Chandar 5/5
  • John Kooner 4/5
  • Steve Saunders 3/5
