Well done to three East Berks players at the 2018 Aylesbury tournament.

 

Richard won 7 games out of 7 winning Division B. Hot on his heels was Maureen who finished second with 5.5 wins. (That draw made the difference!).

In Division C Tricia came third with 5 wins.

 

Well done - sounds like a great day out and journey home!

Aylesbury Winners
Tricia, Richard and Maureen

Last Sunday three East Berks players (Evelyn, Hepzi and Richard) ventured to Swindon to play in a 7 game tournament. 

 

All three were in Division C and all three finished in the top eight.

 

Evelyn finished 8th with 4 wins and a spread of -2

Hepzi finished 2nd with 5 wins and a spread of +318

Richard finished top of Division C winning all 7 games with a spread of +805.

 

Well done all.

 

Also well done to former club member Chris Smith who finished third in Division B.

 

 

 

 

There will be no meeting of East Berks Scrabble Club tonight as it's cold and snowy and the roads around the club are not good.

Hope to see you all next week!

The Winter League Season has just finished, and congratulations to Helen and Maureen for winning their respective divisions.

 

(Richard Porter played insufficient games to win Division B)  

 

 

 

Points were awarded as follows:

 

10 points for a win, an extra 10 points if a Division B player beat an A player. 5 point bonus if a player scored more than their average.
