BDCL1 PooleA vs WimborneA

(Uploaded for JohnW)

It was nice to welcome Wimborne back to North Road for the 2nd time in a week. Playing in the B&D this time, Wimborne were back to full strength. Another tight match followed and once again the spoils were shared.

Mike’s last minute opening preparation once again seemed to pay dividends with both parties settling for a draw early doors.

I felt well prepared and managed to convert a K-side space advantage into a win.

Martin and Ian’s game looked all set to go crazy but fizzled out somewhat into a draw.
Unfortunately (for Poole) the board four match did go crazy. But the imbalances favoured Wimborne. Richi’s Q+2 proving not to be enough for Eddie’s R+B+B. (I must admit I did not see all the details on this one as didn’t want to get too distracted from my own game).

Another good match and always a pleasure hosting Wimborne. We look forward to catching up with some of you again at the 4NCL this weekend.

(Apologies again for the delay and issue with the clocks. A full enquiry will be detailed and a training schedule to be implemented).
