VETERAN KEVIN DENNY turned back the clock to inflict a first defeat on Barbados’ top-rated player Orlando Husbands in the eighth and penultimate round of games in the Heroes Day Chess Festival yesterday.

In defeating Husbands, Denny, a 14-time national champion, ended the hopes of the 19-year-old securing the seven points needed to achieve an international norm.

It was Husbands’ first defeat of the tournament at Divi Southwinds and left him on five points ahead of this evening’s final-round game against five-time national champion Martyn Del Castilho.

Despite the defeat, Husbands remained in third place, narrowly ahead of Denny and another oldstager, Terry Farley. (HG)
