Pragmatic Parsons wins Kensington Rapidplay with 5.5/6
Sunday August 15th 1999
ALAN PARSONS took 1st place at the excellent Kensinton
Rapidplay (see home page for details) yesterday
He romped home with 5.5/6 which could
have been a perfect 6. However on being offered a draw and certain 1st spot he
pragmatically accepted. Thus £80 was his and ours to drink to add to the £75 he took
Rick McMichael come
2nd in the Open but wasn't happy with his play. I would have been happy, since he won £37
without expecting to. Check out his "lucky" win against Michael Franklin. (Who
I'm sure is almost famous) At the end pawn takes rook is strong!. However, Rick did point
out that 24. Rd2 e3 25. Rd3 g5 is rather good for Black anyway!
Kings Head Win College
The Kings Head Chess
Club have won so much money from the last 3 Kensington Rapidplays that I can see
the time when the whole of Imperial College University is given to us by a bankrupt
organising committee. Maybe soon Senior Lecturer professor Alan Parsons will give his
first lecuture in room AP3455 on winning by a nose. The student bar would become ours too
with 5000 pints still to drink. We must therefore continue to hit this tournament hard
with our best players..
Mediocrity and Beer
Also there were Di, Paul, and myself,
but we just contented ourselves with mediocrity and beer!
