President of the Guyana Association of Scrabble Players (GASP), Leon Belony, led from the front when in a brilliant display of word forming skills, he amassed an impeccable 6 points and a positive spread of 868 to take the top prize when the GASP staged an Open Championship in the pavilion of the Malteenoes Sports Club Thomas Lands, Sunday morning last.
Wayne Cave retained some measure of consistency and finished second with 5 points and a positive spread of 238, while Colin Chichester closed off the podium spots after scoring 3 points and a negative spread of 71.
Belony’s victims were Robert Williams (193), Devraj Deonarine (89), Cave (47), Michael Benjamin (258), Maurice Munru (113) and Chichester (168).
Cave rebounded from the Belony loss to chalk up wins over Munru (101), Orlando Michael (50), Chichester (82), Benjamin (84) and Deonarine (21). Chichester also lost to Deonarine (154) but won from Kevin Williams (90), Robert Williams (37) and Orlando Michael (156).
The players will resume practice sessions on Thursday evening at the Malteenoes Sports Club in preparation for the next championship, another GASP Open on September 15 next.
