The Intermediate group on Thursday 25 April played round 2 of the spring competition. Bryant continued his winning streak winning from Jay and Franz scored a half against Ian who got his second stalemate on the board! Max recovered from his loss in round 1 by getting the full point against Jonathan and Mees, back again, scored a win against Sophie.
On Saturday the Advanced group played their round 2 as well. It was very good to see Gerent joining today coming from far out of Discovery Bay. Gerent with white played his first game against Wilson who just out of the opening got his bishop trapped on d5. Sacrificing the bishop for a pawn on h2 was not enough to avert the upcoming white attack on the queen side where black had castled.
Chor Wei unfortunately lost his queen in the middle game and had to resign soon after that against Mei Jing. Bryant lost against Miguel Angel and we got an interesting ranking now with 6 players with 1 point.
As we are adding FIDE CIS accounts to the players we will soon add the players’ FIDE CIS rating rank to the scores too.
