The race to find out who will be the two players to face off in the final of the National Open Scrabble Championship is still unknown after two of the three preliminary rounds were completed yesterday at the Bank of Guyana.
What is confirmed is that defending champion Frederick Collins, who was third at the conclusion of the opening round, has now assumed the lead after finishing with 13 wins and a positive spread of 1,077 and must be considered to be the strong favourite to retain his title.
He is followed by a group of six players on 12 points apiece, while two have 11 victories and one with 10 to round out the Top Ten.
Lying in second place by virtue of a larger spread is opening round leader Moen Gafoor, who continued his surprise run, closing on an impressive 1,443, while James Krakowsky nosed ahead of Abigail McDonald after registering a spread of 1,113 to the latter’s 886.
Colin Chichester occupies the fifth spot with a spread of 723 and he is followed by Floyd Carmichael on 687 and Orlando Michael on 523.
Leon Belony, who failed to impress in the preceding round placed himself in contention, ending on 11 and a spread of 439.
Also, on 11 points is Yvonne Murray and a spread of 232, while Rudolph Michael complete the top ten after finishing with 10 wins and a spread of 119.
Meanwhile, Anand Mohabir who created two upsets in the first round against Chichester and Krakowsky continued in the same vein when he added the scalp of Orlando Michael.
The preliminary rounds conclude today after which the top two players to vie for the national crown will be announced and they will square off in a best of five series for the title.
