Koelle 2015

James Watson's lead is now unassailable as he is a half point clear of runner up Bas van Riel. Bas will be regretting taking a draw against drawmeister Patrick Cook! Potential threat Peter Lumsdon fell foul to Harrison's inventive play and can also no longer challenge James' position. Michael Tausz will win the Reserves no matter what the outcome of next week's catchup games. So, congratulations to James and Michael! more...
