The battle for supremacy continues when the nation’s top scrabble players compete for honours in the GASP Open tournament organized by the Guyana Association of Scrabble Players (GASP) in the pavilion of the famous GCC ground, Bourda, tomorrow morning. The tournament pits the skill of the country’s best word formers and as usual, all eyes will be on national scrabble queen, Abigail McDonald whose game has improved immensely ever since she defeated Fred Collins and acceded to the helm of the sport. She now prepares for national duties at the World Scrabble tournament in Malaysia later this year and will look to use this tournament as practice before she departs Guyana. Notwithstanding this, she would have to be especially wary of her arch rival Collins, as well as Moen Gafoor, who could be ominous on his day.
James Krakowsky, a vastly improved player would also fancy his chances in tomorrow’s tournament. Add the veteran player, Ulric Harris and the up and coming Paul Adams, who won the recently staged intermediate championships and the toughness of the tournament is even more apparent.
Then there are the females like Yvonne Murray, Grace Hercules and Ruby Cummings among others who would want to steal the limelight in tomorrow’s tournament.
Players are reminded that the executive of GASP are very rigid with the stipulated time for the commencement of the tournament. The first tile would be laid at 10:00hrs sharp but registration begins at around 09:30hrs. Trophies and other lucrative prizes are at stake for the top three players.
