Unbeaten Suki misses out
DRAUGHTS WIZARD Ronald “Suki” King played unbeaten throughout but had to settle for fourth place at the World Qualifiers in Mississippi in the United States.
After a gruelling competition, it required honour points – bonus points gained for playing higher ranked opponents – to separate the top players in this tournament.
With three former world champions and a host of grandmasters battling for top honours, it was a keen and competitive competition, with the top three tying on 20 points and the next three on 19.
King, a grandmaster, finished with 19 points and fourth place after eight rounds of high-class play among the world’s best. (MK/PR)
