Club competitions nearly over …?

A flurry of tournament games last night answers a number of questions (and asked a few more) about the final standings for the divisions.

In division 1, Steve L drew with Alex, leaving him at the top of the pile but Marc is still in with a shout, only half a point behind.  Each have one game to play, against the same player – Richard B.

Mike’s loss against Nick leaves him in a shaky spot but he can still survive if he beats Alex and Steve P beats Nick in their final games.  If Mike draws with Alex, they will both go down unless Steve P beats Nick when Mike and Nick will face the drop.  If Alex beats Mike, the loser of Steve P v Nick will be doomed – something like that anyway!? (I can’t find scenarios where Richard, Paul or Qais go down, even though I have tried quite hard)

John’s win against Peter in division 2 appears to leave Richard M and Robert as the top two, although illness and absence complicate things a little.

Toby’s win over Ben would seem to leave him and Nigel W as the top 2 in division 3 but again,  illness and absence may have a role to play.

Good luck to all (well some of you anyway) in your final endeavours!
