A jamboree chess evening at The Cross-Keys, hosting four matches and twenty boards, saw a pretty evenly-matched affair as far as grading goes. However, as they say in football, momentum is everything, and our team/squad continued it's good form with a convincing win in the crucible which is the Wirral 1st division.

Luke started the avalanche, saccing a piece to expose his opponents king, and the rest was history. I weathered some pressure but as the position opened up a similar attack was decisive for me. Jim managed to keep some tactical possibilities in reserve, and this created a win from a fairly even position. Ben demonstrated a nice balance between positional and tactical play in a convincing Sicilian, and had a won position when his opponents flag fell. Mike was a pawn up for what seemed like ages, but as his opponent appeared to be about to regain the pawn in the endgame a draw was agreed.

So, another excellent performance from our players, and our position in the Wirral League Division 1 is secure for this season!
