Tony Locke Rapidplay - round 7 draw

The draw for round seven (the last round) of the Tony Locke Rapidplay has been made (first named player has white):

Clive Bellinger (4.5)v    Nathan Barnes (6)
Svein Kjenner (4.5)v    Mark Johnson (4)
Ed Goodman (4)v    Martin Harris (4)
Alex Welge (3.5)v    John Duff-Cole (2.5)
Luke Tatchell (3)v    Phil Daley (2)
Matt Stemp (2.5)v    Pete Smith (2.5)
Simon Denney (1)v    Dave Chatfield (2.5)
John King (1.5)v    Denzel Gonzales (1)

Where previous round games have not been played both players have been given half a point for the purpose of making the 7th round draw - when the games have been played both player's scores will be updated. These half-points are shown in player scores above - so some scores could potentially go down as matches from previous rounds are played. The number after the player's name indicates their current (provisional) score. Matt, Simon and Denzel joined the competition at the round 4 stage.

The following games from earlier rounds still need to be played:

Pete Smithv    John Duff-Cole
John Kingv    Simon Denney
Denzel Gonzalesv    Phil Daley
Luke Tatchellv    Pete Smith
Martin Harrisv    Alex Welge
Luke Tatchellv    Dave Chatfield
John Duff-Colev    Matt Stemp
Pete Smithv    John King
Luke Tatchellv    Pete Smith


Results on the top boards in round 6 saw wins for Svein Kjenner and Clive Bellinger in the chasing pack, but a win for Nathan Barnes means that he now can't be caught and has won the competition.

There is still a battle for the podium places with Clive and Svein currently occupying 2nd and 3rd - Martin Harris, Mark Johnson and Ed Goodman are also in contention.
