Good result last Wednesday night, with the Armstrong team beating a higher rated St.Benildus 4.5-3.5. All the games were very close near the start, slightly better on a few and slightly worse on few boards. A lot of the games went right down to the wire, with some of our players being more than a little lucky in time scrambles. Rory being given a free rook, and Tim winning a free piece so I'm told. After those games finished, the score was 3.5 each with James left playing in a rook and pawn against rook ending. He duly converted, and we'd pulled of what might be considered an upset!
Here's the full scorecard:
We also had a small tournament in the club last Tuesday, here's how it went:
Well done Ziggy!
Both teams have matches this week, so we'll be looking to keep up the good form. Club night as usual on Tuesday. New post sometime after the matches hopefully, with maybe an interesting game aswell.
