Gambit 2 Top Of The League!

Our 2nd team took full advantage of a weakened WN 1 team, and the fact no other 1st division matches are taking place this week, to beat WN 1 by 4-1 to go top of division 1.

Drag & Graeme played out uneventful draws v Antony Clare & Armaan Gogia respectively. John S played an exchange sacrifice with John Bamford returning the favour a few moves later, and then John played a move that led to either mate or a gain of material. Steve also was in control throughout in his game v Ross Murphy. Jose’s game appeared to be heading for a draw before Hambel Willow erred in a R+pawns ending with both players very short of time.

We’ll enjoy this while it lasts, and have asked the LMC to prorogue the league until May.
