March League Action

(Kevin Argyle)

Both Central teams played on Wednesday 16th with the first team travelling to Grantham on a miserable evening and the second team playing a rearranged game against West Bridgford. Although the first team had to default a board the two results were the same, honours even with 2-2 draws.

Both Alan and Mark made short work of their opponents, Alan winning in only 13 moves even after blundering a pawn in the opening. Mark finished off his game with a nice little combination that he seemed particularly pleased with afterwards. Grantham rearranged their board order due to our default and I ended up playing Chris Hill who was probably earmarked for board 1 originally. Nevertheless I got an advantage from the opening which endured throughout the middlegame until I lost my way (and two pawns) to eventually lose. Still a good result under the circumstances.

The 2nd team lost on the top two boards but Joe and Mark did the business to gain a point and keep them in the hunt for promotion (if indeed there is any at the end of this season).

Alan has kindly provided notes and computer analysis of his game.
