This was a crunch, bottom-of-the-table clash and it was unfortunate for Atticus 4 that they had to default a board.

Their misfortune was further compounded when Luke managed a quick win out of the opening against Chris. After this it always looked like Atticus 3 would do enough to win the match.

The other games were very tight. Sanjoy managed to gain an advantage after a mis-timed central pawn move by Tom which he converted into a win.

Steve Winstanley and Dave agreed a draw where the latter was losing but Steve was virtually out of time.

Steve Burge got the better of Mark while Howard executed a fine win over John.

For me the best game of the night was played out between Martin and Mike. Martin delivered a promising piece sacrifice right out of the opening. As it transpired he played it a move too late and with dogged defence Mike managed to nullify what looked like an awesome attack. Had Martin played it a move earlier the position became much more difficult to defend and with many ways for Mike to go wrong. An excellent game to watch though!
