Already two rounds before the end of the club championship 2018/19 Simon Rueß is about to win the title. With two victories over Ernst Putz and Josef Staller in the fourth and fifth round, the 17-year-old continued his sensational winning streak - five points from five rounds - and achieved a two-point advantage. All he needs now is a draw to crown himself with the club title for the first time and thus become the youngest title bearer in the club's history.
In the sixth round there is a family duel between Simon and Dr. Hans-Ulrich Rueß. Josef Staller and Ernst Putz as well as Johannes Dittrich and Anto Deno meet in the battle for the other podium places.
