Honours Even For The 'C' Team

The Fenton No Hopers, aka the 'C' team, drew 2 - 2 with Meir 'C' last night. Our Finance Director played exceptionally well on board 1 for a well earned win. Draws on boards 2 and 3 for Skippy and Robert West earned us a share of the points. Skippy should really have won his game as he went into the endgame a pawn up and with his opponent in his pouch. Unfortunately he allowed his opponent's King into a better position and had to settle for the draw. Inexperience cost Steven Walley dearly on board 4. He came out of the opening in an excellent position but then lost his way and gave away a minor piece. This later became 2 minor pieces and the inevitable loss followed.
