Huthwaite’s 10 Minutes Of Fame

John Huthwaite stormed to victory in our pre-season event (10 mins per player +/- time based on grade differences). He began by beating Marc Subira, then took out Peter Gorecka-Marshall and Brian Hayward before stunning the chess world by beating favourite Michael Barnes (who had only 4 minutes to John’s 16), and completed his clean sweep with a win over Rob Ensor. Mike recovered from his shock defeat to John to finish 2nd on 4 points. Mike Naylor was 3rd on 3 1/2 points, with Richard Edwards, Rob Ensor & Karam Sangha joint 4th on 3 points. The time handicap worked well as it very much levelled the playing field, producing lots of giant killings including Graham ‘Guru’ Gibson’s defeat of Keith ‘Grinder’ Roper.
