A bit of a shocker last Tuesday. Malcolm missed a fork, and Anthony blundered in a
decent Scicilan Dragon position. Leon lost too, and Terry did not have the best of nights either.
Dan exploited his opponent’s poor opening to win a piece and proceed to overrun him.
Not much between teams on paper……

Hertford won the toss and elected to have White on Board 1.

Anthony did not play the Benko-Half accepted very well, and had to settle
the half point offered. Leon drew, then Terry drew in what was a difficult
position if his opponent had been more enterprising. Malcolm had a
comfortable win, and Dan, on his debut was a bit fortunate his opponent
played a winning endgame far too passively, but to his credit took full
advantage. Played one, one one.
