Flood Cup

 

Round 2 results:

Andrew Robinson 1 Martin Laizans 0

Joseph Curtain 0 Cameron De Vere 1

Evgeny Voloshko 0 Tony Morris 1

Brian Willcock ˝ Tony Howes ˝

Rex Scarf 0 Joshua Morris 1

 

Tonight witnessed five games with ten players participating in Round 2.

 

Brian pulled off an impressive draw against Tony Howes, especially as Brian was in the ascendancy.

With a likely but risky path to victory, Brian claimed he “lacked the courage” and agreed to a draw.

 

Andrew and Martin played a quite even game, with Martin ahead in the opening, and Andrew slightly ahead at the point when Martin blundered and instantly resigned.

 

The most impressive game of the evening was the win by Tony Morris over a strong opponent.

This game was a test of stamina and mental strength, with Evgeny defending for most of the game, but not giving Tony any easy paths to victory.

Tony finally forced the win at 10:50pm, and the game can be viewed here: Evgeny Voloshko 0 Tony Morris 1.

 

Daniel Sheldon rejoins the tournament next round, together with Mark Pendrith whose late entry has been accepted for Round 3.
