The club returned for the New Year with a trio of exciting games in the Goodall Cup.
Current leader Manoj continued his excellent form with a brilliant tactical display against Andy, gaining a big advantage in the middle game before finding a superb tactic pushing his d pawn to the 7th forcing a resignation. Tactics also flowed in the game between Trefor and Dominic. Dominic played too many pawn moves in the opening phase leaving his King open to an attack on the light squares. His only defence was to shed material which quickly led to a losing position. The 3rd game was also a closely fought and exciting affair. Reg battled well and was the exchange up, but Paul had a couple of extra pawns and Reg’s King was open to attack. Paul too victory with a very nice combination
