Having drafted Tom and Jim into the side, we were expecting to outgun Hoylake for this fixture, but in the event the stars of the evening were Natasha, who scored the decisive point and Steve who managed to get us over the line at the very end.

Jim created early imbalances in his game, but his opponent sat on the position, where even a pawn sacrifice was insufficient to tilt proceedings in his favour and the spoils were shared.

Tom had a dominant position in a London System / Reverse Slav, with gary the g-pawn and harry the h-pawn leading the advance. But once queens came off the board, his early superiority dissipated.

In a topsy-turvy game Natasha looked to be in difficulty but lured her opponent onto a fork and that was all she wrote.

My game looked good early on, but an untimely blunder handed over the initiative. I was looking down the barrel, but with time running short my opponent threw me a lifeline and acquiesced to a draw.

This left Steve in a tight tussle needing a draw to seal victory in the match. With both players down to less than five minutes, his opponent threw the kitchen sink at Steve to try to make the decisive breakthrough but Steve managed to hold firm and victory was secured.

This leaves us sitting pretty with 2 wins out of 2. A great start for the newly inaugurated Atticus 2 in the Wirral League, but a reminder that the line between success and failure is slight indeed.
