Central 1 Away to Gambit 4

Our first team managed to exactly duplicate Central 2’s result from the week before with a draw against Gambit 4 in their first game in Division 3.

Both Andrew and Geof produced their usual solid performances, Andrew now being unbeaten in 7 games, playing confident chess, and more than able to hold his own for the first team.

Alan, on board 1, pretty much outclassed his lower rated opponent. The position became complicated in the middlegame and his opponent eventually lost on time with Alan very much in control.

Steve also was pressing, turned down a draw but was unable to break his opponent down.

Unfortunately Graham was unable to repeat his heroics from the previous week and went down to Mike Harper.
