Well, who would have thought it. I was dreading Yeovil visiting because I had looked at their grades and it seemed they were all in the 130s. I must have got the wrong data or club because as it turned out both John Wilkinson and Mike Ward were outgraded by 15, Stan Wojcik outgraded his opponent by 4 and I outgraded Damain Kaniewski by 14. Well, we’ve got a chance.
Stan finished first easily winning after his opponent blundered early on. Disappointing for Stan not to have a close game.
I finished second having been lucky to survive Black’s early onslaught, but winning a piece went on to convert it to a victory. (We then had a 10 minute a side game and I won that too. Not Damian’s night). (See Grahams Game)
John finished third losing a good close battle. (See John’s Game)
Surprise of the night I suppose was Mike’s win. The game had appeared to be heading for a draw, which would have been a good result for Mike as Black, but an inspired Mike went on to win. (See Mike’s Game)
