Exmouth Seniors Congress Day 4 (5th Nov. 2015)

Of the earlier low-graded high-fliers, Michael Dow and Joseph Clapp refused to be intimidated and continued their flight in the upper atmosphere. There was bad luck for one high-flier when his phone went off, not once but twice. Which reminded me of what happened to an Exmouth clubmate a few years ago in the same room, when a friend phoned him up to ask when he might be free, and the phone went off. Q: What time do you think your game might finish? A: It just has! 

The surprise of the Junior Section was how Sellwood, on the back of his best-ever (short) run of results, now fell to Blencowe, which, in turn, was Ian’s best-ever tournament result, showing what an unpredictable thing chess can be…  especially at a Seniors event.
