Horfield D move into third with win over Yate A

After our unanticipated Minor KO autumn victory at the washing machine factory I expected a much hotter program this time. In reality we were given an encouraging start by the late arrival of 2 home players and by half-time had the better of it overall : Mike’s unenviable position was at least balanced by Alan’s piece for pawn advantage and I much preferred our standings on boards 4 and 5 ; Graham and I appeared level. Come the final spin cycle Mike fought back well when Adrian faltered and I was pleased to make overdue intelligent use of the increments in a passed pawns and heavy pieces shoot-out.
