Mulago Kings Chess Club closed in on the league title ahead of rivals Enkabi with a 4.5-0.5 beating of Aviation Chess Club at Mulago Hospital on Sunday 29th August 2010.

In other games, Mulago Knights beat Kireka 3-1 (both sides did not have a player on board five, while Makerere University edged Mengo 3.5-1.5.

Elsewhere the Kampala Club versus Enkabi game ended in dispute after the entire visiting side (Enkabi) arrived in time for the scheduled start of the games only to find that their hosts (Kampala Club) had only one player, Joachim Okoth at the playing venue. By the time of filing this report, the matter was yet to be resolved as Enkabi was claiming a 5-0 win while Kampala Club insisted it should be 4-1.

Whichever result is awarded to Enkabi is likely to enable them get to the table of the table ahead of Mulago Kings who are leading them by only 3.5 points.

Tentative standings excluding the Enkabi versus Kampala Club game.
