HANDICAP RAPIDPLAY

The National Club Handicap Rapidplay was held on Sunday 9th November in the extremely pleasant surroundings of Magdalen College School in Oxford. 13 Teams competed in a 5 round Swiss event, and the success of the handicapping system led to an extremely close finish, with two of the three winners coming from the SCCU Area. Final scores were as follows, the points shown being the net total after adjustment for the handicap points shown in brackets :-  

Cardiff                        (+1)  10.5

Magdalen CS 2           (+3)  10.5*

Wanstead & Woodford (-1)   10.5

Crowthorne 2               (-1)   9

Guildford                     (-3)   9 

Magdalen CS 1           (-3)    9

Bedford                      (-3)    8.5

Syston                       (+1)   8.5

*Magdalen School were awarded the Trophy on tie-break, but the loot was split between the three winners.    Mushrooms were actually the highest scorers “OTB” with 14pts.   Wanstead & Woodford individual results as follows:

1 Li Wu ( RPG 188)               2

2 Larry Marden (RPG 162)      2

3 Mark Murrell  (SPG 139)     3.5

4 David Smith   (RPG 130)      4  

Altogether an enjoyable day out with the Club’s coffers  benefiting by the sum of £150!
