BARBADIAN Terry Farley edged compatriot Martyn Del Castilho into fourth place at the Sub-Zonal Chess Championships to clinch a place in the Zonal Championships.

And six Barbadians will be awarded the title of Candidate Master after securing four-and-a-half points when the championships concluded on Monday night at Divi Southwinds Hotel.

Farley played to a draw against Luis Salazar of Venezuela in the final round, while Del Castilho defeated another Venezuelan, Jose Mora, leaving the two Barbadians on six out of a maximum nine points and just outside the top three.

However, Farley, one of only three International Masters Barbados has produced, took fourth place on the tie-breaker. (HG)
