MCC Open Round 2

The second round of the MCC Open saw some upsets, most notably on board 3 where young Ari Dale beat the experienced FM Eddy Levi. There were also upsets on some of the lower boards, notably Shane Lawson beating Richard Voon, and Ben Gavine beating Abdullah Durani. What was noticable from a spectators perspective was how competitive the games were across the boards. In the end the majority of the games went with seeding, but not without quite a few struggles along the way. And surprisingly, the last game to finish was between 2 promising young juniors who battled out an endgame to the bitter end, finishing at about 11.20pm when most of the adults were ready for bed!
