At Last. We finally won a Division 2 league match with thanks to Matthew, and Dan on the top 2 boards and a default on board 5. Dan got his trademark attacking win. Matthew trapped his opponent piece. Anthony essayed a hedgehog which started well but was too spiky without proper support. Malcolm’s faced a Benko and got overpowered by his opponents rooks.

White resigns on board 1
