SA Closed tournament: Contenders 2018 results

The round robin format final 8 competition was held in Cape Town 22-24 September.

Chris Welsh added an upset in his online game against Victor to a solid performance in the over the board games to create a two way tie with Victor at the top on 6 points. Two way ties are resolved in favour of the winner of the head-to-head game, giving Chris first place. Chris’s performance also earned his promotion to 3 dan. Congratulations!

Andre’s fighting style of play yielded results against the Cape players, with him taking 3 of the 4 games (from Cape Town, only Sam scored his point against Andre).
