Report

Another quality result, giving us 5/6 points from the weekend!

This result was just as good as the team were pretty much lost from an early stage with Chrisand Richard going down relatively quickly. Rob agreed a quick draw and the most experienced in the team had to do the grafting for the team, which they did amazingly well!

Tyson got a clear opening advantage when his opponent didnít' seem to understand the Ruy Lopez and his king-side was soon smashed open. The positional aspect as well as the un-coordinated black pieces didn't help him and he was never really in the game.

Chris seemed to be doing OK but got suddenly squashed through the center and his pieces were left disorganized and everything just fell apart for him. His end came swiftly.

Colin held his own and was awaiting results on the other boards to see if he had to push with the tiniest of advantages. It would have been doubtful that he could have converted his slight advantage of two bishops but shortly after his opponent's draw offer, Bill, who had been drawing/losing, was suddenly winning, giving Col the perfect opportunity of grabbing the half point.

Bill, as stated, was in a bit of a mess and had gone on the aggressive side of a sicilian. His pawn sacks should not have been enough and although he had smashed open his opponent's king, white should have held on. Bill offered a draw in a complicated position, which after some consideration, his opponent refused. His following move blundered a rook! Bill took no further chances and converted smoothly thereby drawing the match 3-3.

Richard again seemed to be doing absolutely fine in an equal middle-game. He had regained a sacked pawn in the Evans Gambit and had good dark-square control. Unfortunately, he pushed an incorrect pawn in the center and reduced his advantage massively. Black consequently whipped up a king-side attack and broke through Richard's resilient defense.

Rob followed Chris' game for the initial moves building himself a decent position. However, after the exchanges that followed, he felt that there was no advantage in the position and offered the draw which his opponent accepted.

All in all, a great weekend's performance from the team and one that has done the B.C.A. proud.
