No Rickets in Apsley (but plenty of gambits)

Up the A41 for 4th match of the season against Hemel Hempstead 3 in the delightful Apsley district of the town. (The 3rd match against Stevenage 2 is level at 2-2 with one adjournment – news when match finished).

So far so good – We have won the match and are claiming a win on adjudication on board #3. A tasty Vienna Gambit on board #1 got us of to a great start. A decidedly off-the-beaten-track Colorado Gambit on board #2 led to material advantage from the opening. Queens Gambit on #3 looking good so far (we are partial to our gambits in Borehamwood). French on Board 4# for a solid win, and Ruy Lopez draw on Board #5.
