** = January 2018 Grade (Bracketed)

A fine effort by Atticus 3 who were heavily outgunned except for the top board.

Southport were let down by their top board and we agreed to allow a stand-in replacement. Luke duly dispatched him in double-quick time and we were 1-0 to the good.

Howard then agreed a draw in an inferior position in a game which was otherwise closely contested.

I had a very good game where I introduced a novelty in the 150 attack. However, I probably should have stuck to the main line. It produced an interesting position where Black was threatening to break through on the Queenside (as usual). If he does it he wins but if I hold it then I would be better. After a tough struggle I thought I had done enough to gain the upper hand although my opponent had the opportunity to force a draw by repetiton. I thought he would opt for this but, to his credit, Fergal had other ideas and found a lovely mating net. We were level at this point.

Dave then went down against Carl Kennedy but, even then, things looked OK on the remaining boards.

Unfortunately, it was not to be and Southport’s strength in depth eventually told. Mark managed to pick up the half-point against Karl Nadin but first Mike and then Tom suffered losses in what were both exciting, double edged games.

No disgrace here. Southport were one of the two pre-season favourites to win the division and despite the 5-2 score-line we gave a good account of ourselves.
