2nd day of the year, and a home match against St Albans 3rd team.  Adam got his 5th draw in the 5 matches we have played this season.  Good win (our only one) for Malcolm who won the exchange, then went a rook up, gave back some material and obtained a won pawn ending.Dan tried his best to win a rook and pawn ending. Malcom St Albans218


Anthony played against a Closed Sicilian and reached a drawn opposite colour Bishop ending. Terry’s game was adjourned on the night, but a draw was agreed a few days later. Position below (Terry black) shows why.
