Not so long ago, scrabble players, Wayne Cave, Maurice Munroe and Robert Williams were merely lowly rated seeds attempting to solidify their rankings among their highly rated counterparts. Then Leon Belony assumed the helm of the Guyana Association of Scrabble Players (GASP) and introduced a new strategy where the best player from among the lowly rated seeds was awarded a special prize at the end of tournaments.
The ploy seems to have worked since those players have lifted themselves from the rubble and are now competing strongly against their senior counterparts. Now fresh from a scintillating victory in the just concluded Tier ‘B’ championships last weekend, Wayne Cave will be at the top of his game and enters as a strong contender when the GASP stages an Open Scrabble Championship at the Maltenoes Sports Club tomorrow morning. It would also be foolhardy to dismiss Munroe and Williams as just mere contenders since these two have demonstrated a high level of consistence which is a very important trait in the word forming game.
Several of the big guns will also vie for places including Moen Gafoor, James Krakowsky, Leon Belony, Colin Chichester and Orlando Michael among others. Those in the distaff category will also be anxious to mark their name among the top finishers. As such, the men will have to be weary of National Champion, Abigail McDonald, Ruby Cummings and Grace Hercules among others.
The registration starts at 09:30hrs and the first tile will be moved half an hour later. The early birds will benefit from a $200 discount from the stipulated $700 while apart from the full fee; latecomers will have their clocks activated in their absence.
