Back to Winning Ways!

After an underwhelming period from Nottingham Central teams recently, the 1st team got back to winning ways Monday evening against Nomads 2. In doing so, we completed the double over them and left them rooted to the foot of division 3 whilst we move into clear second.

Alan and Mark completed convincing wins on the top two boards to set up the victory, Mark completely outplaying his lower rated opponent and Alan coolly bringing home the full point with only a few minutes left on the clock. As usual I squandered a totally winning position and ended up with yet another draw. A number of strong winning moves were helpfully pointed out to me after the match.

Mick’s opponent was unrated but I suspect pretty strong and although Mick was the exchange up he was outplayed in the endgame.

Overall an enjoyable evening at The Embankment.
