chemistry - ionization energy(check + help)

posted by .

I need help understanding by boron does not follow the ionization trend across the period is lower than the first two elements in the same period, where as it should be higher.

has it got to do with the p block having an electron, which makes it easier to remove the electron hence the 1st ionization energy is lower than the general trend it should exhibit?
