Trinidadian players pull off 3 more upsets in round 2…
Olympiad medalist, NM Ravishen Singh defeated the Top Seed, FM William Puntier in round 2 of the Subzonal 2.3.5. Ravi played comfortably using his time well, while Puntier showed the pressure he was under by using up the clock. The game lasted 41 moves.
Meanwhile Trinidad star, CM Allan Munro took 90 moves in an nail-biting Sicilian defense to defeat International Master Gascon Del Nogal. The game was the last to finish. Just before they finished however, Daryl Davis pulled out a victory against Jamaican FM, Shane Matthews. Davis seems to be finding back the form which he had 2 years ago.
We have to be proud of our players for their fight and support them.
