BOARD 4 – A NEW SUPERSUB. Last minute sub Michael J. got us off to a flying start with a win against John Heath inside an hour and a half.
1-0 to us
BOARD 3 – CUT AND THRUST. Every time I glanced at Michael’s game, first one then the other looked in control. Then Michael went an exchange up. I looked again and then Eddie was looking the more dangerous. In the end Eddie wore our Michael down.
BOARD 2 – A GREAT WIN. I have always thought Ronnie a very difficult opponent and he always plays better than his 96 grade suggests so our Bob needed to play a solid game against him and Bob came up trumps gaining control with a pawn advantage that Ronnie could not stop.
2-1 to us
BOARD 1 – A CAPTAIN’S INNINGS? SADLY NOT. Early exchanges were even until Paul gained a centre pawn. I then had to withstand a constant attack to try and maintain a position but to no avail as Paul captured my king.
