Club Championships

Four rounds of the Stowmarket Club Championship have now been completed, with all 12 entrants having played their full quota of games.   There is a winner already, with one round still to be played, as Stephen Lewis is on 4 points, whilst his nearest three rivals (James Irwin, Daniel Yarnton and Vicky Allen) are all trailing on 2½ points.

See the current cross-table here.

Meanwhile, the six round Ipswich Club Championship has gone to a play-off.   19 members participated and most games were completed.   Steve Gregory and Ian Wallis both scored 5/6.   Steve and Ian did not play each other during the initial six rounds.   Steve lost a game to Mike Cook (4½ points) and Ian lost to Ted Matthewson (3½ points).

See the final cross-table here.   The play-off result will be published here later.

  1. Bob,
    As we have quite a small number of entrants this year the last round of the Stowmarket Club Championship is a playoff round - with the hope of avoiding vast mismatches in the final round that could occur with a narrow field.
    Each player in an odd numbered position after the 4th round will play the player who finished directly below them - with the lower placed player needing to win to overtake the other player in the final standings. A draw or a win for the highest placed player sees the two remain in their positions after round 4.
    Therefore, I am playing Daniel Yarnton again in the 5th round. If he beats me he will be Club Champion.
    Stephen
