Suki wins again
IT’S OFFICIAL. Ronald “Suki” King is the winner of the Henderson Layne Memorial Draughts Tournament.
But he was felled at the last furlong, suffering a shock 1-0 defeat to replacement player Trevor “Gazook” Howell on Monday, carrying him to 32 points, four more than defending champion Junior “Post” Walrond.
Howell, an old hand at the game, has played steadily since replacing Sam Marshall.
Walrond drew with Cedric Fields after Fields won the first game, but the former champion bounced back commendably.
Rawle “School Boy” Williams has performed consistently and a 1-0 victory over the improved Oliver Whitford enabled him to emerge the only unbeaten player. (HH)
