After our early season division 3 loss to Hillsborough C, it was always going to be a tricky cup match against their first team. One change was made to the team that played Hillsborough C – Danny was promoted to our first team and Dave Cook came in for his first game of the season. Although the result card shows a heavy defeat, we all fought hard and there were no quick wins for Hillsborough. Indeed Brendan and Jamie’s games went right to the death.

After a difficult time trying to get 6 players for the match, I would like to thank all those who played.

We both stopped recording moves at this point. I managed to queen my pawn to get two queens on the board – a first for me. Tom however got his rook and queen around my king and he sacrificed his rook to get perpetual check. I was well behind at times but Tom’s time pressure helped me to get back into the game.

Here’s my game with John Mercy. Note, time was running out (and I eventually flagged) so I didn’t record all the moves. To my mind, the pivotal moment of the game was my very reckless Nxg6 on move 23. Really enjoyed the game still. Well played John!
