Sarfati and Nakauchi Win Memorial

Just received this breaking news from Graeme Gardiner this morning.

Jonathan Sarfati and Gene Nakauchi have jointly won the 2008 Ruth Coxhill Memorial with a score of 7/9. Jonathan was undefeated. In third place was Sam Grigg with 6.5, who gathered a packet of rating points. Many thanks to the four strong adult players, IM Peter Froehlich, FM Jonathan Sarfati, FM Nik Stawski and Matthew Sonter for putting themselves up for a 'hiding to nothing' against the rapidly improving juniors. A feature of the event was the fighting chess played by all competitors.

The usual tournament tables can be found here, while games are available here.
