The autumnal equinox has passed and the season began in The Holy Trinity Church, Stevenage, and we achieved the requisite trinity of points for a fine team win.
Adam gained an advantage From the Colle system and won comfortably. Malcolm had a decent position from the queens Gambit, but misjudged a line when opening up the position. Kevin gained a solid draw against his opponents favoured Polish opening.
Terry won a piece against the Queens Indian and his opponent resigned at the time control. Anthony had a decent Sicilian as black but managed to draw a won pawn ending.
