It was a very close affair against the league leaders.

On board 1, Danny calmly won his match, as usual, rejecting a draw offer and then winning the rook and pawn ending. Peter and Alan played out a draw on board 2 whilst Bill had a typical game for him on board 3. Checkmate threats on each move and pieces being sacrificed ending with a king chase around the board. Unfortunately for us, Kevin found safety and converted the win. Poor Steve on board 4 went wrong in the opening, losing a piece, which was enough for John to secure the win. Dave played an exciting Morra gambit on board 5 with Stephen’s queen often short of squares. Indeed at one point, it looked like the queen could have been trapped. However, as the night wore on, Stephen’s material advantage made the difference. Finally on board 6, an inspirational performance from David. After losing a piece (or was it a well calculated sacrifice?), he created a mating net with all of his pieces attacking Ron’s king.
