Woodseats C vs Sheffield Nomads C

February 10 @ 7:30 pm

Wins for Rob and Steve, but losses for both myself and David, resulted in a tied match with Nomad's C team. I was seated next to Rob, and it looked like a game of Blitz, the speed those chaps played. Didn't catch much of the other two games. My game with Jo Woollard was a story of missed opportunity and poor play on my part; on move 19, if only I'd recaptured with the pawn, I never saw 20. Bg4…

Woodseats B vs Rotherham B

February 3 @ 7:30 pm

A good result for the team, and well needed given the current league table. Steve was first to finish - unfortunately Phil was a little too Sharp(!) for him, gaining material in a complicated position. Oliver blundered a piece against me in the opening and after putting up a good fight, the material deficit proved too much. Peter, our Sicilian expert, played white against a Sicilian defence. Ed stole a pawn but this proved to be his downfall as his…

Barnsley C vs Woodseats C

January 21 @ 7:30 pm

A loss for our C team against Barnsley C. Rob Skelton was our only win on board 3. Some lost opportunities for me on board 2 playing Vlad Shaposhnikov. I think I may have done better had I taken the Knight on a7 (I had several opportunities to do so). This would force black to recapture with his Rook, scuppering his Queen-side castling rights. Anyhow, I think the big take-away for me was the importance of good time management. I…

Woodseats B vs Hillsborough C

January 20 @ 7:30 pm

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.…

Ecclesall D vs Woodseats C

January 15 @ 7:30 pm

A good result for our C team tonight against hosts, Ecclesall D. Only 3 boards in play. A draw for Steve on board 1, and wins for myself and Rob on boards 2 and 3. I really enjoyed my game with Ken. I managed to stay more calm and focused than normal. I got an early advantage and don't think I made any serious blunders. Probably my end game could have been more accurate; for example, Qxb2 rather than Rf8…
