Division 2 – Wimborne C 2.5/1.5 Poole B

With a repeat of the previous score just 5 days ago this underrated Wimborne team had a deserved win against Poole. It is painful from the writer who was outplayed on Board 4 by John Bowley who had a very good game.

Chip and Joergen Neilson had a repeat draw on board with no advantage accruing to either.
Sergiu gained revenge against Sergey Sim after a disputed hand on hand off on a piece which was a little disruptive however it was a win and last week’s loss was avenged.
Dragi had an attacking game on board 3 but could not find a positive way through, was forced back and then into a defensive position and eventually succumbed to defeat by strong play from Steve Cullerton making it 2/2 against Poole within 5 days. Not a good day at the office but we move on and with games in hand still time to recover.

These 2 results for Wimborne C show what a tough league it is and its hard to imagine why they were propping up Division 2.
