Hunte defeated club mate Eric “Fireman” Rice 2-0 in a fourth round match at the Christ Church Girls’ School yesterday before a power outage brought proceedings to a halt. Hunte also drew his first game against brother Hascol Trotman, who has been allowed to repeat, despite winning last year.

Rice also bounced back to have a 1-0 advantage over Andrew “Lion” Harris. Hunte leads with 13 points, two more than Mark Barnett of Lodge Road. Barnett beat off the Lion 1-0. Trotman and Carl David are joint third on 10 points.

In the Masters category Ronald “Suki” King’s 1-0 victory over Junior Walrond left him at the top with 12 points, just two more than Walrond, the defending champion, and an improving Carson Farley. Farley defeated Nathaniel “Thani” Grosvenor 1-0.

Darwin “King of Cross” Lorde remains unbeaten on nine points with Rawle “School Boy” Williams; these two playing to a draw yesterday.

Still within striking range with eight rounds remaining are Grosvenor, Cedric Fields, former national champion Jeffrey “Socks” Clarke, Ian Callender, Richard Grazette and Oliver Whitford, all on eight points.

Matches are Tuesday and Thursdays at the Lodge Road Club and Sundays at the girls’ school.
