Paignton Congress Day 6

This was the final day of the 5 Rd. Morning event. After some tense and exciting play, the prize list shaped up as follows:

  5 Rd. Morning Pts Prize
1st= Andrew Footner 4 £130
  Raymond Gamble
  Arthur Hibbitt
  Robert Sanders
  Robert Thompson
GP Malcolm Roberts £50
GP Lee Bullock 3 £50
Slow Paul Smith £5
Starter Robert Jones
  G. Rosser
  R. Piggott

As usual, a prizegiving was organised shortly after the final game to finish. Arboter Vic Cross dragooned Ewart Smith to had over the cheques.  Usually acticing in an official capacity, Ewart was here purely in the role of player, which he found relaxing for a change. With two Smiths and Joneses in this section, I’d wondered whether Arbiter Vic Cross would get round to pairing them up at some point. That finally occurred this round where Ewart met Michael Jones to make it a Smith v Jones affair.

l-r: Messrs Footner, Hibbitt, Sanders, Thompson & Gamble, beneath Napolean's Coronation

The penultimate round takes players to the sharp end of things, and in this case, Arkell assured himself of at least a share of 1st prize, ending Harari’s fine run; he now only needs a safe draw in the final round to stay clear of all rivals.
