Hastings 1 v. Horsham 2

The 2nd team travelled to third place Hastings last Thursday. We managed three solid draws on Boards 1, 3 & 4, losing the match 3½-1½.
Phil was somewhat unfortunate as he had the initiative against his opponent’s London System but overlooked a combination that resulted in the loss of a piece.
J Sugden (191) ½-½ P Harbott (171)
H Tebbs (186) 1-0 P Stimpson (170)
B Cafferty (183) ½-½ T Pavlovic (170)

I couldn't resist sharing this even though it is such a frightening thought. I mean who would have believed it...chess in 3d.

First Winner!

Winner

The final of the Quickplay plate took place on Tuesday between Lucy and Zevon.

The fact that this was fought out between two such talented Juniors is excellent in itself. Our congratulations to Zevon who managed to overcome his higher graded opponent.

Well done to both finalists.

Horsham 2 v. Woodpushers 1

Important wins by Phil Stimpson and Paul Taylor on Boards 2 & 5 respectively secured a vital win for the 2nd team against struggling Woodpushers 1.
Phil was the first to finish executing a beautiful attack against Ian Kelly’s exposed King. I made a couple of poor decisions in my game and could manage no better than a drawn rook, minor piece and pawn ending. Paul won a piece and duly turned his game into a win and Ian secured a draw to get to the all-important 3 points !
