Points on the Board

Our first win of the season! Not exactly illuminating the firmament, but who cares.

Kevin lost on board 3 against a solid Caro-Kann, but his presence on board  boosted our lower board strength.
Anthony was playing too slowly as was his opponent, so offered a draw in a slightly inferior position.
Dan had an excellent win with white in the French Advanced.
Terry agreed a draw in the time scramble which was the right result, as neither player could really progress.
Malcolm was a doubled pawn up in a queen ending with modest initiative. His opponent unfortunately lost on time, after succumbing to pressure.
