A very tight derby - it began well for Atticus 1, as Dave James, with a bit of move-order trickery, had a very quick victory over Tom. However, things started looking dubious for us on the lower boards - Derek was down a pawn and James was down the exchange. Chris went down to Mike's forceful play and Derek, after a long fight, went down to Andrea. Balancing this out,against Andrej I had a good outing with Arthur the a-pawn - I got it all the way to a6 which combined with a Bishop on g2 sufficed for a win. John and Brian, meanwhile, developed a 'heavy' middlegame position where there was much scope for maneuvering - and promptly agreed a draw. So, with an even score, it came down to the last 3 games. Boards 4 and 5 were critical - Giorgos was in an ending still up an exchange but James, with the clock on his side, found a nasty pin and fought back to win. Dave Odunaiya had good winning chances with an extra pawn and a big time-edge over Nick, but then exchanged down into a drawn K+P ending. Dominic needed only a draw to secure the match, but having secured the two Bishops in the opening had gone a pawn up and rightly pressed his advantage home for victory. So, although Atticus 2 remain favourites for the title, the League has been made a little more interesting.
