SAE - Gorse Ride
Saturday, March 04
With the EPSCA Zonals coming up over the next two weekends, the SAE at Gorse Ride is the last such event until the final tournament at Sonning Common in a month's time. The standard of the entrants was very high, with only a handful of new players who all rather struggled against the more experienced players.
He has only lost one Satruday afternoon game all season (to Ben Vandersluis at the Dolphin School SAE, since you ask), and he wasn't about to add to that tally, as Adrian Archer-Lock romped home with a perfect 6 out of 6, and a new Berkshire grade of over 1500.
The under grade 500 trophy came down to a blitz game between Harry Thomas (who had claimed some big name scalps in the middle rounds, and saw a well-deserved huge grade increase) and Reece Chen, which was won by Reece - his first trophy.
