July 10, 2024

Former undisputed world draughts champion Ronald ‘Suki’ King is in 2nd place after two rounds of the Barbados Open Draughts Tournament.

The first edition of the re-branded tournament, which got on the way at the All Souls Church hall on Bank Hall, saw Suki defeating American Eric Strange 2-0, but then drew both games with arch-rival Jack Francis, as neither player took any chances.

Suki is on six, points, trailing Julian Burgess by one point.

Burgess had a 2-0 victory over Wilfred Fredrick and then went on to beat Richard Grazette 1-0 to finish the night on seven points.

Defending national champion Francis started his title defence with a 1-0 victory over Trevor Howell before the draws against Suki.
