BOARD 2. Bob’s game against Ken Keeler looked even for the first hour. When I looked again Bob was a piece down from which he never recovered. 1-0 down

BOARD 3. Josh got a rook and a pawn for a knight and a bishop early on and was pushing for a win. Bob Wallace then got the swap offs he needed and the end game went.   Josh, with just his king, and Bob with king, knight and bishop. All credit to Bob finding the right moves to get the checkmate. 2-0 down.

BOARD 4.  Captain Michael went a knight up and made it tell in getting a passed pawn, finally getting a touchdown to secure a win. (Michael is now 3/3 in the Walker) 2-1 down.

BOARD 1 Malcolm Snashall is my HEX . In all the years I have known him I have never beaten him.  I was a pawn down in an endgame where a draw now was not enough. In venturing out, he finished me off with a series of checks and the game was lost .( Looking forward to our next encounter Malcolm. ) A 3-1 loss.

We have now played 3, won 2, lost 1 in the Walker Shield.
