Near, but half a cigar

Penultimate match of the season – a trip up the A1 to Stevenage.

Adam, our occasional guest board 1,  had good control from a Colle/Stonewall and used his 2 pawn advantage to win a same coloured bishops ending. Malcolm’s opponent missed a discovered check + attack on his queen in the opening. Painful. Terry drew a pawn ending. Anthony had an excellent Chinese Dragon, but went astray….. Leon lost. We woz definitely a bit robbed.
