A great win tonight for Atticus 2 in Division 1. Unfortunately John Williams was ill on the day, thankfully Dave Stuttard was able to step in at short notice and had a great victory taking on Dave Pearcey's Owens Defence.

Steve Kee went into his new opening(still a secret for now!) and managed to get a very useful draw against one of the MCA's top players Roger Williamson.

Andrej held firm as Steve Lee posed threats against his Kingside and was eventually able to to turn this to his advantage.

Tom seemed to be under some pressure against James Faulkner and at one stage Tom had 3 pieces on the H file with limited options. However James's King was left exposed in the centre and Tom found some brilliant moves to mate in the closing minutes.

Luke was given limited opportunities to use his normally aggresive style and Danny was able to convert his pawn advantage in good style.

David Odunaiya was able to swop off queens near the end and win a fine rook and pawns ending.

For long periods Giorgos game looked equal but he found some useful tatics at the end to get the point.

Board 7 Dave Pearcey

 

 

 

It was good to welcome back David Odunaiya and Charlie Kennaugh  into action. Charlie has had some notable GM scalps over the years and will be a big asset to the Club. Atticus 1 were missing James Rothwell but overall the combined team grades were fairly close. 

On Board 1 Steve Kee tried out his new opening on John Redmond however this used to be one of John's preferred openings and John seemed to play a very agressive line with big pawn pushes on the Kingside, both players had to play carefully as their Kings became exposed. At the end with only seconds remaining on the clock a draw was agreed.

On Board 2 Charlie opened up in his normal aggresive style against Andrej. Andrej seemed well prepared and a hard fough battle went to the final seconds before a draw was agreed

On Board 3  This game saw a very rare defeat for Dave James, Dave appeared to over extend his pawns in the centre and Tom was able to penetrate the position.

On Board 4 This was a close game, Jim went a pawn up and had a advantage however Luke posed many problems and with time running out Jim miscalculated and Luke took the point.

On Board 5 David continued with his normal attacking style and though the game was fairly equal Nick's clock became a factor and eventually his position deteriorated.

On Board 6 The game appeared equal until the middle game were John overlooked that Giorgos was able to win a piece. Despite John's best efforts to make threats, Giorgos held firm for the point.

On  Board 7  Dave and Derek castled on opposite sides of the board, this meant for some entertaining action as both Kings came under attack. However it was Dave who managed to breakthrough first.

The final score was an unexpected 6-1 to Atticus 2.

 

 

 

 

For a long time I felt we were favourites for this one, John Williams had an early draw following a big exchange of pieces. Tom Bimpson was trying out a new opening, this looked quite a novel line and he looked to be under pressure early on but this proved to be part of the plan and Tom had a quick victory in 23 moves. A lot of the remaining games looked equal but Steve Kee looked to be under pressure from Dom Foord however Andrej looked to be in control in his match. As the matches drew to a conclusion Luke's big time advantage worked in his favour and he converted a very close fought end game. David Odunaiya tried his best to create changes but Mike Hardman held firm. Giorgos had a tough game against Sameen and another draw was agreed. In the end Andrej will be disappointed as he let his advantage slip away and he suffered a very rare defeat. FINAL SCORE 3.5/3.5
