Senior Section Round 6, Spencer Masango (5.5/6) edges the solid Albert Maketo to keep the hope alive of winning The 2017 Crystal Candy Harare Open. The stubborn youngster Roy Mwadzura also had 5.5pts after stoning and leaving for dead ‘giant’ Hamilton ‘Bhudha’ Mandeya with the black pieces. The following day at 8 am Spencer on the black side entertained Vasco Chayamiti (who had 5pts) on board 1. On board 2 there was a very good battle to enjoy Roy on the white side hoped to bury Knights Chess Academy Zimbabwe all time legend ‘and young man made of steel’ Zhemba Jemusse (with 4.5pts) on board 2. We expected fireworks!
