Based on his hot form and extensive vocabulary, Moen Gafoor would start out as the favourite when the nation’s top scrabble players aspire for an opportunity to secure a lien on the Insurance Brokers trophy when the Guyana Association of Scrabble Players (GASP) stages that tournament at the Maltenoes Cricket Club this morning.
Caribbean Scrabble Champion and former national champion, Fred Collins would also vie for top honours and provided he finds a form, Gafoor would have to dig deep to come up with a win. Then there are the Michaels, Orlando and Rudolph, two mean players that could change the configuration of the game at any stage. Add Colin Chichester and Ewart Adams and the situation becomes a mite dicey.
One cannot discount the women the likes of Grace Hercules, Yvonne Murray and Ruby Cummings, fierce competitors that have stuck up their fingers in the past. Any scrabble player also knows that irrespective of one’s form, the bag and the selection of tiles could play a decisive role in the outcome of games. With this in mind, the players will be starting off on even footing and even the tenderfoots may feel that they have a chance to cart off the spoils. With such interesting scenarios, a competitive tournament is envisaged with the eventual winner carting off a beautiful trophy.
There will also be lucrative prizes for the second and third place positions while, despite a prize not available for this category, each players would want to form the most bingos even if just for the bragging privileges such a feat affords.
Registration commences at 9:30hrs while the first tile would be moved half an hour later. Players arriving late would start at a disadvantage as their clocks would be activated in their absence.
