And the beat goes on

Poole D welcomed Bournemouth for our first game of the new year. Half an hour in, Chris Ambrose agreed a draw with Simon Errington. As the evening wore on Krzysztof drew with Roy Egginton and we were left with yours truly and Tony to win the honours. Tony was looking good for a win and after 30 moves in my game, neither Paul Errington nor I had taken a piece and it was complete gridlock. I took the offered draw and Tony finally beat Andrew Alderton with 2 minutes to spare. Well done Tony. Poole D are now 3 points clear at the top of Div 4 with our next match being the return half of the Bournemouth fixture.
