A very exciting Evening of Chess saw Atticus 2 come out on top with a 4-3 Scoreline,this means the positions at the top of MCA Division 1 were reversed and Atticus 2 now lead by 1 point.

Atticus 1 were without 2 of their top players in John Redmond and David James,this gave the edge to the Atticus 2 team however the result could have been a lot different.

On Board 1 Steve Kee seemed to be ahead out of the opening but as the clock became a factor Charlie Kennaugh used his great experience to turn things around in his favour.

On Board 2 Andrej had a possible edge out of the opening but Jim fought well and posed some problems, eventually in the final frantic minutes Andrej found some great moves to reach a winning position with seconds remaining.

On Board 3 Tom and Nick both tried to gain a lead but their efforts were in vain and hard fought draw was agreed

On Board 4 Luke found himself bravely clinging on in a losing position as James Rothwell played a great game however time became a factor and James had to a agree a draw with less than 90 seconds left. Credit must go to Luke for finding some great resources to survive.

On Board 5  Giorgos and John had a very level game until the end game were Giorgos was able to take over for a vital victory.

On Board 6 Dave and Martin had a very exciting tactical battle in the centre of the board.There were many threats from both sides but Martin had been unable to castle and this gave Dave the opportunity to finally take the lead.

On Board 7  Brian seemed a bit off form as Sanjoy dominated the match and continued his fine season.
