Barry puts the boot in

Mini LeagueBarry Fulthorpe 01

Barry Fulthorpe made a welcome return to form in his Mini League game tonight.  He beat an opponent graded some 26 points higher to give our M2 team, with handicap points, a draw against Leeds M2.

Barry (aka Bigfoot) has recovered well from his condition at the British Rapidplays in November where he had to be assigned a dedicated table at which he lounged in state, feet up, like a reclining Buddha receiving tribute from allcomers.

Did you hear? ……………… Paul’s car broke down.  So Barry offered him a toe.

Our other Mini team, M1, meantime had a walkover.  Their scheduled opponents (Leeds M1) defaulted, so our team collected 3½ points without lifting a chesspiece.

Rapidplay League

Late news:  Moortown R2 v Limewood R1:  Great news from the Rapidplay front:  a brilliant win over Moortown by 4½ to 1½.  Tom Leah won both his games.  Paul May had 1 win and 1 loss and Robert Moneagle scored a win and a draw.  After 3 of the 5 rounds Limewood is riding high in the Rapidplay League.
