Skerries 4.5 - 1.5 Cavan-Surely our chance gone of contending for a promotion place.Two games still to be played against Trinners but we,ll have to get a result of biblical proportions against St Benildus on the last day if we are to advance.

Phibsboro 2½-3½ Drogheda

Getting very tight at the top now.

Drogheda 10-40 (Trinity)
St Benildus 8.5-35 (Trinity, Cavan)
Skerries 10-33 (Curragh)
Cavan 9.4-32.5 (St Benildus)

Don't know if any results from the last two games in Cavan v Trinity? Either way, if Cavan and Benildus win the adjourned games, then a 5-1 win against Trinity (probably unlikely, but still) would seal promotion with a game to go and open a one-point lead on Drogheda into the last round. Not bad given we lost 5-1 to them on the opening day!

Edit - in fact, Drogheda now need just a half point to ensure promotion - either against Trinity on the final day, or for any of Cavan's remaining eight opponents. So congrats to them!

Trinity 1½-3½ St Benildus. Final board to be played on Wednesday; postponed due to international selection.

Means we need one point from the last round to be promoted, while if we can win the final board on Wednesday, we'd go into the final round level on points with Drogheda at the top.

So both Drogheda and St. Benildus on 40......and promoted (barring Cavan winning all eight games left?)!
Well Done.

Cavan could technically take 1½ off Trinity and then beat us 6-0, but effectively I think it's fair to say that Drogheda and Benildus are promoted.

Hopefully Trinity can do us a favour on the final day against Drogheda now! (Feel dirty saying that )

Apologies if I’ve missed a clarification earlier but wondering why there is no result posted for round 9 on chess league, Cavan vs Trinity. Anyone got any info?

I believe the last two boards are still outstanding. It's 2.5-1.5 to Trinity still
