Farley pushes ahead
INTERNATIONAL master Terry Farley has hit the front in the second Qualifier for the 2017 Digicel Barbados National Chess Championships.
Farley defeated previous leader Kemp Lynch in their round six clash on Thursday evening at the Bridgetown Chess Centre to move to five points. He is now a half point ahead of Lynch and Jerome Harewood, who both sit on four and a half points.
Farley defeated Lynch with the black pieces in what turned out to be an anti-climactic result for many who thought the young Lynch would have made a tough fight of it.
However, after starting aggressively with the white pieces, Lynch soon ran into difficulties on his Queen side and succumbed to defeat. (PR/EZS)
