Congratulations to Alan Aldridge, winner of the Club Championship B grade! He scored an effortless victory over Lawrence Farrington on Thursday (Lawrence's loud swearing merely signifying the blundering away of a bishop, but he was well and truly lost already), thus finishing on 7 points out of a possible 8.
I should explain the table - although it looks as though Ramarao Miriyala equalled Alan on points, actually one of his victories was against David Paul whom Alan didn't get the chance to play because of David's withdrawal. Unfortunately I have had to discount all David's results, although the game results have still been submitted for ratings (NZCF and FIDE)
Still, it was a great result for Ramarao playing in his first tournament at the club, and no doubt we will be seeing more great things from him in the future!
