Captains Comment

Last night we made the long journey to Kingston to play their B team in a third division match. This match included a first appearance for the club by Roger Trinidade Martins Amaro and a first appearance for the TVB team by Andrew Reeves. Welcome to both of you.

The top three boards all achieved solid draws against higher rated players with Andrew on board 1 and Tony on board 2 in particular making light of differences of 20 and 15 points respectively. Unfortunately the bottom three boards (including your captain) all lost, so resulting in a defeat by 1.5 - 4.5. The last game to finish was on board 4 where Roger and his opponent were engaged in an enthralling game, watched by a large crowd of spectators, that culminated in a mutually frenetic time scramble. Unfortunately Roger's flag fell first although he was probably lost in any case. On board 6 I had a very even position with little opportunity for either side, but in attempting to "make something happen" I made a tactical miscalculation that cost me the exchange and the game.
