TERRY FARLEY defeated Kevin Denny to edge Orlando Husbands for third place and claim the highest finish by a Barbadian in the annual Heroes Day Chess Festival.

It was Farley’s third successive victory and with Husbands losing to Denny in the penultimate round and drawing with Martyn Del Castilho in the last round, both Farley and Husbands finished on five-and-a-half points when the tournament ended on Monday at Divi Southwinds.

Farley, an International Master, took third place on the tie-breaker as FIDE Master Husbands missed out on a podium finish in the ten-man tournament that attracted five overseas entrants and was played on a round-robin format over five successive days. (HG)
