JUNE SATURDAY SWISS

a very close middle and top end match for
this month’s Swiss Pairs event

 

Players from Thirsk battled out the middle ground with York locals whilst a Wakefield couple, Karen and Adrian, clinched matchpoints at their first venture at Swiss Pairs at York.

At their very first pairing, Catherine Laverack and Barney Nesbit had a first round maximum only to sink down the winners’ scoreboard on the 2nd and 3rd rounds. But then they finally achieved maximum Victory Points again in the final round.

They came top of the (Swiss) mountain gaining the coveted giant Toblerone each for their efforts.

Well done to Catherine and Barney.

Will they be playing again in the July Swiss Pairs on Saturday 13th? Come along and see!

 

PS:
Congratulations to Andrew Merrison (pictured with his partner Rose Townsend) – Saturday’s Swiss marked his 500th session since joining the club two years ago.
