Draw Against St Albans. Still Unbeaten.

An interesting match. Dan won in 9 moves against the French as Black lost his queen (…8e5?? see below). Malcolm also gained advantage in a few moves from the Queens Gambit and won. Adam lost in the Winnawer French after overlooking a tactic. Terry had 2 Bishops for 2 knights, but his doubled pawns were weak and were eventually his undoing. All square Anthony faced a Staunton Gambit and after a tense struggle, agreed a draw. Overall, a fair result. 2 wins and 2 draws is a good start.
