4 Richard Sleep – 1:0 Martin Loat 121
5 George Dokic 87 ½:½ Trevor Bates 119
6 Ken Broadley 51 0:1 Geoff Richards 83
2½:3½

Another win for Richard, who, I can’t help thinking, really should be playing on Board 2. Dan and George did really well to draw with stronger opposition, and there was also a solid draw for Alex.
