Dennis Scarr wins Middlesbrough B-Level
The annual Advanced B Level Tournament was held at Albert Park on the weekend of 25 / 26th June.
The weather on Saturday was sunny with a moderate breeze. By Sunday we saw a reversal of weather with a strong breeze and only moderate sunshine.
Handicaps ranged from 0 to 9 with 6 of the 8 players having handicaps in the range 0 - 3.
A Flexible Swiss format was used however the target of 3 games on each day fell short on day 2.
A time limit of 2.5 hours was used to keep things moving along. 50% of games went to time which might suggest given lawn and wind conditions the time limit was a tad ambitious.
At the end of Day 1 both Dennis Scarr and Neil Adams were on 3 wins from 3 games however the first round of games on Day 2 saw Neil Adams suffer his only loss. Dennis Scarr remained unbeaten on both days.
Dennis Scarr 5/5

Paul Hetherington 3/4
Derek Wats 2/5
Terry Vernazza 1/5
Nigel Roberts 1/5
Charles Waterfield 0/4
