Another close match in which Liverpool did well to take the full 2 points.

Luke Boumphrey and Tomas Lancaric had a complex game that eventually cancelled out to a draw.

Mike Williams looked level almost through to the end but lost out at the death to Ian Paul Stephens.

Mark Wadsworth looked like he was under a bit of pressure but he hung in there and managed to pick up the half-point.

Sadly, Tom Webb will have had a sleepless night following this game where he executed what looked like a candidate’s brilliancy only to see his opponent’s King escape through a bolt hole when it had looked like Mate was inevitable. Unfortunately, Tom had given up too much material to get to what he thought was a won position and suffered a reverse as a consequence.

I had a very tight game against Ben Percival. Going into the end-game there was very little in it. We were level on material but Ben had a doubled pawn and this was enough for me to take the win after creating passed pawns on opposite wings in a King & Pawns ending.

Dave Hurley got caught in an opening trap which compromised his position against Zack Bitro. There was still life in the position but Zack found the answers and the win.

Steve Winstanley, standing in for Howard Sleeman,  had a difficult game against Peter Mellor. There was little in it although Peter was perhaps a slightly better. However, when Steve offered the draw Peter was happy to accept.

Jim Wiseman (Captain)
