E Team win 3:1 at Southbourne on Friday 6 March

I’m pleased to say that the E team stayed at the top of Division 5 following their win last Friday. Well done, Jamie, for achieving another quick win on Board 4. Joe on Board 1 beat himself up for giving a piece (his Queen!) away when in a strong, attacking position and thereby lost the game. We’ve all been there…. I managed to win my game on Board 2, having spotted a number of attacking moves by my opponent along the way. Mike Minvalla took a more studied, ponderous approach to his game and also achieved a well-deserved win.

We’re now three points ahead in Div 5, with three matches to play. So, fingers crossed.
