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…

Darnall & Handsworth C vs Woodseats C

January 6 @ 7:30 pm

The first match of 2020 for our C team; playing away vs Darnall & Handsworth. I was on board 2 playing black against Geoff Facer. I felt our game was fairly even all the way through. An opportunity missed on move 43. 43 ... Rd1 would have been better than 43 ... Ng4, forcing the white King off the 1st rank, where it could be forked along with the black Rook (with 44 ... Ng4). Time was running low for…
