BOARD 4. OUR RED HOT CAPTAIN. Sarah Garrett, playing her first game, was unlucky to come up against our red hot captain Michael Doyle and lost after eight moves with a Queen and Bishop mate. 1-0 up
BOARD 3. RELIABLE BOB. Young George also had an early bath with Bob finishing by 8 o’ clock. 2-0 up
BOARD 2. STAR OF THE NIGHT. What a fight young eight-year-old Oli put up against Andy. Although Andy had gone a knight up early on, Oli did not allow him to make any mistakes as Andy had to slowly find the right moves to avoid the young star coming back at him, Andy finally winning. 3-0 up
BOARD 1. WELL PREPARED STEVE. Steve and I had already drawn in our previous encounter. So we were both up for a return match. Steve had anticipated my playing a Dutch against his 1.d4 and had planned his game. For the first 24 moves I felt I was okay but needed to press and made a bad move on my 25th which Steve pounced on and from then on pounded my King all the way from f7 over to a7 finishing with a mate. Well played, Steve.
We have now played four, won three and lost one in our quest for the Walker Shield.
