Match Report

Author:  Ben Wilkinson

Date:  16 Nov 2018

Two matches now, six different players, and the division 3 team still looks strong. Tonights match saw chess of varying quality, and the final result seemed fair. Dennis duly provided the quick win required on board 4, unfortunately it was in his opponents favour after blundering his queen. Chris's congress form continued with an excellent win over Mike Hussey. However there were comments from the higher echelons of Newton Abbot who suggested that his endgame technique may need some work.

Ben, on board one was playing the majority of his game in "James Schofield" type time trouble, however not with the same aplomb. In the end he gratefully accepted a draw at a time when his position was fast beginning to unravel.

In the final game, Roy and Jacquie were in and even position however Jacquie's clock was down to less than 15 seconds. In an attempt to complicate the position, and take the game on the clock, Roy ran into the perils of incremental time controls, and saw his sacrifice give his opponent a chance to make several forced moves and regain several precious minutes. in the end Roy offered, draw 2 pawns for a piece down, but with ten minutes to two on the clock. Jacquie accepted gratefully, and the match was tied.
