Gerald Boulle first played in the Championship section in 1956, and made his last appearance there in 2001. Apart from breaks in 1957, 1958 and 1962, Gerald was a regular contestant, and competed for the Durban title a record 43 times.

He almost secured the title in 1960, but lost a playoff match with John Blackburn. Gerald first became Durban champion in 1963, and he then proceeded to win the title five times in a row, before losing it in 1968 to many times champion Moss Kolnik.

Probably the greatest of his 8 title wins came in 1975, when he regained the title with the very fine score of 8 points out of 9. He beat defending champion David Walker in their individual game, and only suffered one loss to Bill Gregory.

Other Results

Gerald won the Natal Closed title on 7 occasions between 1967 and 1979.
