Round 4: St George Club Teams Challenge Jun 11 – Aug 6

Teams Crosstable after Week 4

It was the ZZZ’s again leading the charge in Round 4, their four wins widening their lead over Plant’s Pinned Parsnips to three points. These two top teams sit on 17.5/20 and 14.5/20, with Curtis’ Castling Carrots (11/20) still holding onto to third place. The Z’s  success has been anchored by their Boards 3 and 5: Leo Xu and William Liu remain the only players with perfect scores; but all of the other team members have also held their own, with not a single loss in any round.

Individual results for Rounds 1-4 are now available in two different formats (take your pick between the one generated by the Orion software or that by Vega), and as usual, can also be accessed via the Results page.

Round 3: St George Club Teams Challenge Jun 11 – Aug 6

Teams Crosstable after Week 3

Perfect scores are rare in the Teams Challenge, but the ZZZ’s have managed one, improving on their round 2 performance to blitz their round 3 rivals, and move to a commanding score of 13.5/15. Most heartening though was the result of Babic’s Boleslavsky Beans, who reversed their previous form and scored 4.5/5 for the round. That’s not enough as yet to get onto the podium, upon which we find Plant’s Pinned Parsnips (11.5/15) and Curtis’ Castling Carrots (8/15).

Individual results for Rounds 1-3 are now available in two different formats (take your pick between the one generated by the Orion software or that by Vega), and as usual, can also be accessed via the Results page.

In the pairings table, the team on the left plays: black on board 1, white on board 2, black on board 3, white on board 4, black on board 5.
