Our Surrey Centenary Trophy match against Epsom 3 at the Adelaide on 18 October resulted in a hard-fought draw. We had a large rating advantage on top board, but were outrated lower down, so this was an excellent result.
- Peter Lalic (2314) 1:0 Chris Marshall (1791)
- Jack Thompson (e1500) 1:0 James Pooler (1725)
- Andreas Maroulis (1488) 1:0 Mike Wickham (1715)
- Mike Robinson-Chui (1442) 0:1 Venkatesh Subramoniam (1651)
- Ron Bilkhu (1404) 0:1 David Flewellen (1646)
- Katy Cooke (e1100) 0:1 Alistair Mackenzie (1610)
Congratulations and thanks to everyone, especially Jack (putting into practice what he learnt at RJCC 20 years ago) and Andreas for their wins against higher rated opponents, and to Katy for her first appearance in a league match for Richmond.
