Rafe scores important win in Intermediate and Mei Jing leads Advanced Group

October 22nd, 2013

Discovery Bay Beginners

Last Saturday in the Beginners group we played a round robin of 5 rounds.

In Group A we saw a very tight race for glory in which Alex emerged as the number 1. Kian and Jaewon had some games in which their positions were very much winning but the solution could not be found over the board.

In Group B some players had to leave a little earlier, thus losing a critical match. In this scramble of unevenly played matches Fiona turned out to be the winner together with Kaya.

Discovery Bay Intermediate

Rafe scored an important win against Ian and now ranks 1st place with Ian both with 5 points but Rafe has played one game less. With several games still to play it is not clear how this group ends although Rafe seems the favorite at this moment.

Discovery Bay Advanced

In the Advanced group we welcome two new members. New adult player James brings in some solid quality which he displayed by beating Richard in round 2.

New girl youth player Samira also showed she had no starting problems by winning her first game in this group against Max who in round 1 had miraculously escaped into a stalemate against Chor Wei.

Chor Wei in this round moved convincingly towards a better position against Mei Jing but in the King Pawn against King Pawn ending Mei Jing’s calculations turned out to be more precise and once her pawn queened the finish was merely a technical exercise.

Miguel Angel hasn’t found his form yet in this group and lost against Koji who seems to improve week after week.
