CASTLEHILL RANDOM KNOCKOUT
Report – Q/Finals – 30/05/21
All four Q/Finals produced a “blackwash” as all players with the black side won! The only surprise win grading wise was Marten Kats beating Keith Rose. Having said that being played online, Marten is having the better results than Keith who is not so keen on playing online with a 2 dimensional board!
Congratulations to Miguel Alvarez, Graham Mooney, Andre Babin and Marten Kats on reaching the semi-final stages. Graham beat young rising star, Rishi Vijayakumar J9 who did not have one of his better days. Still being inconsistent is part of being young and he is learning all the time! Graham of course is an experienced hand at this game and a very, very good player!
Norman Waugh (1061) was delighted with the way he played against his stronger opponent and made Miguel (1650)e work for his victory pushing him all the way!
Robert Jackson playing against Andre Babin for the second time in two weeks could not overcome Andre this time, but he did not go without a fight!
The draw for the semi-finals is now up on our website (see link below) and the deadline date for the matches to be played is Mon 5th July 21.
Good luck to all four players!
