ST ALBANS CHESS CONGRESS

A good few days for two Sidcup players, Robert Pezet and David Gilbert, who finished tied-third in the intermediate section at last weekend’s chess congress at St Albans. They each played four games, Robert winning two and drawing two, while David won three and lost one (to the eventual winner). Both players took half-point byes in the third round to give them scores of 3½/5. They won’t be getting rich though – they share the £70 third prize with four other players!
