The Atticus debut season in the Wirral 1st Division drew to a close in a most respectable fashion with another drawn match – totalling four in all, yet still featuring the players who got this team promoted. A brilliant effort from everyone to handle the often painful 'step up'.

This evening, however, was 'sac' evening: every one of us decided to gamble material on the hope of a better life ahead. The extremes of this varied from James' Benko gambit, the first to be decided as an agreed draw, to Tom's avalanche of sacs, which never really seemed feasible – though he was facing a player who needed the point to be Wirral !st Division player of the year, so well done to Mike. Then Luke's natural-born king-hunter instinct inevitably led to a sac, but sadly for him Phil's natural-born defence just about held firm for the full point. This dangerous spirit must have become infectious, as I sacced the exchange on move 13, yet this proved to be adequate compensation to eventually arrive at the win. The performance of the evening though, was Jim's defeat of Phil Brine, who had only lost 2 games from 13 including some fine wins. A pawn sac led to further complications and before long Jim's natural tactical fluency led him to turn what was initially a  mere twinkle of eye into a cracking win.

Of course, the evening wasn't perfect: eventually the chorus of 'Blue Moon' was heard downstairs, sung by our blue 'siblings' as one possibility of glory may have faded. Yet, one can become so wrapt in the finesses of the beautiful game, that this in itself offers sufficient compensation. Long live the sac!
