CLUB NIGHT REPORT: Thurs 15th February 2018
For Castlehill this was a quiet night with only 30 players down, including 7 juniors!
Div 1: Castlehill C ½. Perth A 3½
It was always going to be a tough ask against a strong Perth A and so it proved. Subhayu Banerjee (1359) playing up got a very respectable draw against Andrew Sutherland on board 4. Indeed it took a “D” team player to get the “C” team any points! I did not see the match so cannot comment any further other than to say; congratulations Perth A!
JUNIOR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP
Section 1 (Club Champion table)
three matches were played tonight.
Krish Akula J10 ½, Jake Proctor J12 ½
Ramit Kanodia J10 1, Rishabh Akula J12 0
Anish Chaudhuri J11 ½, Krish Akula J10 ½
It seems Krish is fast becoming the newcdraw king! Some good matches, with some nice moves in, along with some not so nice moves! But we are seeing an improvement in all our juniors and that can only be a good thing. Ramit & Rishabh both lead on two points, but there is still a long way to go. Who will be the first Castlehill Junior Club Champion in a long time? We will just have to wait and see!
Eleven (11) players took part in the ladder tonight, split into 2 sections. In a tough first group, Ray Noble against all the odds won both his matches against far stronger players! This performance keeps him top the ladder points table. Not the best of nights for Paul, but sometimes it just does not happen! In group two Colin stole the show to finish undefeated on the night and is now in 2nd place in the ladder points table, just behind Ray.
