Excellent day for the Scots in Round 5 today. Keti joint leader on 4.5/5, with Steve, Neil and Jonathan near top of over 50s and Craig (3.5/5) Philip and Raj all winning and Douglas and Jim drawing against higher rated opponents in 65+.section
Good luck tomorrow in 6 round (of 11). Should be good games to watch from top 15 boards in each event

Excellent competetive win today by Craig Pritchett after a rather unpromising opening and a well played draw with Black by Keti in top of table encounter and Steve Mannion also had good draw on live boards.

All 13 of our representatives acquitting themselves reasonably well by their own standards at the half way stage. In the over 50s, draw today between Mannion and J Grant. Keti is continuing her strong Olympiad form and is still unbeaten. Definitely going for it today with a strong attacking position. Don't want to jinx it, but a win today could take her into first place!


RE: World Senior Individual Championships 2018, Bled, Slovenia, 17-30 November - Alastair White - 25-11-2018

Oops..looks like I did jinx it. Sorry. Keti was doing very well (+2) but didn't convert and got turned over in the end. Movsessian won and now leads.


RE: World Senior Individual Championships 2018, Bled, Slovenia, 17-30 November - Alan Borwell - 28-11-2018

After a could of losses, Keti recovered well in round seven with a nice win but is rewarded with a penultimate round game with Jonathan who is also doing very well!  Craig is still among the leaders in the 65+ event and has white today and Philip is climbing the table. Jim Webster is having good event. These 11 round tournaments conclude in Bled tomorrow with the Workd Championship playoffs today.
