Maughn achieves title of Draughts Master

Friday, March 15 2013

DICKSON MAUGHN, the national draughts champion, has achieved the title of a Draughts Master by the Fédération Mondiale du Jeu de Dames (FMJD — World Draughts Federation).

In a recent interview, Maughn, the eight-time Trinidad and Tobago champ, was pleased with this accomplishment, having won a lot of tournaments, both locally and abroad.

Maughn, who will be representing the twin-island republic at the World Cup in Russia in June, noted that he is self-coached and not under the hands of the national coach Harm Wiersma.

In related news, the 17th Pan American Draughts Championships took place at the Cascadia Hotel Conference Room, Cascadia Hotel, Cascade, recently.

Maughn placed fourth with 28 points, in a field of 20 entrants.

Allan Silva of Brazil triumphed with 32 points, ahead of Nicolas Derival of the United States (29) and Angel Mejia of the Dominican Republic (28).

The other Trinidad and Tobago participants at the event were Andy Charles (eighth with 25 points), Timothy Dennis (14th with 14 points) and Keith Sylvester (15th with 13 points).
