Report

For the 4th weekend of the 4NCL, the B.C.A. were unfortunate enough to find themselves at the bottom of the league. As there were some weaker teams beneath them, they inevitably were paired off against them. This sadly meant that there were a number of defaults during the weekend, which made life slightly awkward. Suffice to say that a simple task lay in front of all of us and we were happy enough to walk away with 4 match points and 10 game points.

ON the Saturday, Tyson had a steady but typical win with the white bits against a weaker opponent, grinding out Ruy Lopez.

Chris Ross had a slightly unusual game, where it seemed that he had a clear advantage for most of the time. However, the opening and middle-game advantage dwindled away and a drawish end-game resulted.

Steve Hilton had an uneventful draw, but was slightly lucky not to blunder into a lost position when his opponent didnít take advantage of some slack end-game play by white. The rook pawn ending is in fact not that lost for black and could be winning!

Bill Armstrong turned an inept opening plan by his opponent into some very affective play and played energetically and precisely to flourish with a king-side attack.

Guy whitehouse pounced on some very bizarre play by his opponent and won a sort and decisive game, mating his opponent on the edge of the board!

Guildford-ADC were unable to field a board 6. which meant Mark Kirkham, our debut player was without a game.
