The news of the week (31)

News from Malta - Two weeks ago, the tournament played in Attard had to be stopped due to the illness of organizer Joe Debono. The semi-finals and finals of the event will take place on January 24. Daniele Spadaro, Hector Scerri, Simon Gauci and Gordon Caruana are the remaining competitors and hopefully there will be many good games over there. Good luck to all of them.
