11th Beacon Seniors Congress – Day 3

After a fairly dismal start to the week weatherwise, Exmouth enjoyed a cloudless, wind-free day for the 3rd round, and it was noticeable how much nearer the start time of 1 p.m.  players arrived, as they enjoyed to sunny interlude.

Every one of the “Junior” games finished decisively, with Simon Bartlett and Alan Brusey moving into the joint lead on 2.5/3 pts. Details:-

Ariss (½) 0 1 Roberts (0)
Bartlett (1½) 1 0 McAllan (1½)
Brusey (1½) 1 0 Dean (1)
Burton (1) 1 0 Sellwood (1)
Rogers (1) 0 1 Yeo (1)

Meanwhile, in the Seniors Section, Robert Everson won the last Rd. 2 game to finish on Tuesday, thereby joining Dodgson and Footner, J in the lead with a maximum 2/2. However, today all three drew their games and so were joined in the lead by 3 winners, namely Ken Norman, David Openshaw and Phil Stimpson, creating a 6-way tie for the lead.

Steve Dean tries the Caro-Kann against Alan Brusey, as Simon Bartlett greets Ian McAllan.

Ariss plays Roberts, Burton (partly hidden) plays Colin Sellwood, while Yeo waits for Dave Rogers to appear.

Tom Maloney (W) plays Mike Wiltshire on bottom board.

Wojcik (W) plays Sid Jones, while Norman Tidy takes on Dr. Dave Toms.
