Thursday evening saw four very close games that resulted in a win for Poole B, whose previous two matches had been defeats. Toby, whose good form is continuing, was first to finish with a solid win against his opponent. John proved that his 191 rating is close to reality with an excellent mid/end-game after a not-so-excellent opening. He finished his game in style after he refused his opponent’s offer of a draw. The score was 2-0 for us although this didn’t last long. Sergiu got in a bit of trouble on board 3 against a very under-rated player, who is having a very good season, and this resulted in a defeat. The last game to finish was Ciprian. His opponent, Mr Jenks, had a very strong attack and, according to Mike, should have won the game. Ciprian offered a draw earlier on in the game, which was refused. His final offer of a draw, which was when his opponent was lacking on time (9 seconds left!), was accepted.
A great win for Poole B that will keep us in the top division for at least another season.
Thanks everyone for playing.
