Social Share

BARBADIAN Martyn Del Castilho was keeping close tabs on the front-runners at the Sub-Zonal Chess Championships after the fourth round of games at the Divi Southwinds Hotel yesterday.

Del Castilho, the highest rated local player and the fifth highest of the 44 men’s entrants, completed a third successive victory yesterday morning to move to three-and-a-half points.

It put him in third place, half-point behind joint leaders Maluku Lorne of Jamaica and Mark Machin Rivera of Puerto Rico, who have both maintained a 100 per cent winning record.

FIDE master Del Castilho, a four-time national champion, defeated Jose Davila of Puerto Rico in the third round on Friday and followed up with victory against Adrian Winter of Trinidad and Tobago yesterday. (HG)
