Club Champs Round 8

Vega Link

Tournament leader Bruce Watson beat second place Nigel Metge. Timothy Ha also beat Daqi Mao to go into outright second. Wins for both Tracy Tang and Hao Tang saw the Father and Daughter share 3rd place.

The final round will likely see Bruce Watson playing Tim Ha for 1st place, Bruce has the advantage of a half point and a small rating difference. There are a large group of players on 6 and 5.5 that could share 2nd or 3rd.
