A good result for our 1st team. Unfortunately Derek’s opponent didn’t turn up, so the match is actually scored -0.5 – 4.0 in Crowthorne’s favour.
After three rounds, this leaves Crowthorne 1 on 4 match points out of a possible 6 in their eight-team group in Division 4. This puts us in equal second but with four rounds to go it is obviously early days yet.
Our 2nd team lost, but Dylan won and Teah managed an amazing stalemate!!
Final position of J Leake – Teah de Silva. Black to move!
On this Wednesday’s club night we will have a mini tournament using a relatively fast time control. We will default to use 5m+5s, unless there is a clear preference for something else. We’ll be using chess.com instead of our usual lichess, for the benefit of those who prefer chess.com.
Other than that, there will be time enough for chat, and post-match analysis of games worthy of analysis.
8pm on Wednesday – your chance to be the club’s February champion 😉
