Point Wasted By 'C' Team

The 'C' team missed the chance to go joint top of Division 5 last night after dropping a point in a 2-2 draw at Newcastle 'F'. There were wins for Robert and Chris on boards 3 and 4 but we should have got more out of the games on the top 2 boards. Mike had what, on later analysis, turned out to be a winning game but he chose a poor continuation and ended up a piece down. Derek was a Knight down in his game but, in terrible time trouble, he overlooked his opponent leaving a Rook en prise and it was all downhill after that. Nonetheless, we are still in 2nd place in the table and with a match in hand. Click here to view last night's score card.
