Report

Not much to say for this day’s play. Our opponents could only field 3 players, therefore forfeiting the draw at least. We only needed a half-point to secure the match and that was quickly obtained by Mark, playing on board. 3.

Tyson had an interesting game on top board, but after some scary-looking tactics by his opponent, the simple win of the white queen meant immediate destruction for the opponents.

Board 2 was extremely lucky to get away with a draw when Guy Whitehouse offered it when he was winning at least the exchange.

Mark Kirkham lost a silly pawn in the opening, won it back and was getting into a winning ending when team captain Tyson requested him to offer the draw to secure match points.
