13th Senior Congress Day 3

The draw for this round illustrated the crazy logic that often pervades this particular event, more so than a typical weekender. All grades are mixed in together, only the accellerated Swiss pairing in the first 2 rounds keeping top and bottom apart. However, it is easy to forget that many a modestly-graded octogenarian, in all likelihood had a much higher graded in their prime, and every so often will pull out a little gem of a game, worthy of their best. Nothing can be taken for granted in the Seniors – let the unwary beware!

So here we see two experienced 150+ players on “null points”, fighting for the Slow Starter prize, while two modest grades on Bd. 5 challenging for the lead. It’s crazy, but great fun.

Having come all the way from Holland to play, Wim Velker, was taken ill on Tuesday evening, and took a bye for Rd. 3 but later phoned in to say that the illness was persisting and would have to withdraw and return home.
