Number 62 for Geoffrey Marain


Winner Geoffrey and runner-up Matthias
Last Wednesday the Warcoing Ducks had to move their tournament to the premises of templeuve United as their own room in Pecq was being repainted. 8 players competed in a group stage so that everyone played 7 games of 20 minutes. Surprisingly there was no draw during the 28 games and Geoffrey marai (Flickers Milano) ended on top of the table while the young Matthias Averlant, who was celebrating his 15th birthday, was a surprising runner-up, a few days after lifting the National U15 Cup in Rochefort. Matthias improved a lot over the last few weeks and managed to win important games against Vincent Coppenolle (3rd in the final table) and Corentin Boltz (4th). John Verfaillie also proved he's improving by taking the 5th place while André Boltz won his decisive game against Florian Renaut to take the 6th places. The young Benjamin Marain ended in last position but he's also showing great improvements. There will be a Templeuve United tournament in November 11 in the afternoon while on the same day, Templeuve will also host the first leg of the provincial league in the morning.
