Book Prize Tournament Round 7

Tournament organiser Peter Przybycin reports on the Book Prize Tournament so far, and announces the player pairings for Round 7 – including some ‘local Derby’ – literally in-house – fixtures…

Hi All,

Round 6 is now complete.

John Kooner maintains his one point lead, but he will play his nearest challenger this coming round. A game worth watching?

Round 7 will also see two domestic battles. No bloodshed please!

I have noticed that Suzan Dunleavy’s play has improved a lot, with no reward as yet, but it will come. She fought well against Keven. Maybe she can break her duck against her husband!
