Brussels Friendly 11: Toon Van Herreweghen’s 5th Strike

Brussels Friendly 11 gathered 14 players on Friday the 3rd of March in the Royal Orée. Jurga STANCIUTE was the only newcomer and she duly beat Pierre FAUTRE & Dan PASCU to reach the semi-finals in the Main tournament (matches to 5). No ‘real’ upsets in the early rounds (Alain CHIF won against Brigitte COLLET and Guy VAN MIDDELEM ousted Bert VAN KERCKHOVE & Johan SEGERS) so Sassan KACHANIAN (by beating Guy easily) and Toon (winning against Jurga) met in the final : Toon emerged around midnight in a close encounter. His 5th victory in 11 Brussels Friendly organisations, bravo !
