The Board 1 pairing in the fourth round of the Club Championship, Cawdery-Freeman, ended in a win for the defending Champion, who retains his lead on 4/4. There are, however, six players within one point of John Cawdery, waiting for the slightest slip. These include John Hodgson, 2118, the number two seed, a point adrift through having underestimated Michael Wilson in Round 1.
Competition is open all the way down: following the top seven, there are another 24 players covered by a point. But then we have only had four rounds. Round 5 on 8 February should sort out a few things!
