Yate A too strong for Horfield D (12/09/17)

Yate A are a strong side who have very solid top boards and must be in with a good chance of promotion this season. Horfield D struggled against them.

Lee and Alan lost first. Alan was a pawn up and but came under a mate threat and may have resigned prematurely. Peter won. Howard was under pressure and used up too much time. Graham lost a rook for a knight and Jeremy won clinically. Mike had declined a draw a few times but when the match was lost accepted the inevitable in a dead drawn rook and pawn ending.

(1) Alan Clarke 0 – 1 Adrian Champion

(2) §Howard Milbank 0 – 1 Andrew Penn

(3) Graham Strickland 0 – 1 Jeremy Gardner

(4) Lee Abercasis 0 – 1 Andy Hewitt

(5) Mike Jennings 0.5 – 0.5 Pete McAfee

(6) Peter Marks 1 – 0 Mike Bradford


NB: Horfield were black on boards 1, 3, and 5
