The heavy grading disparity between the teams suggested, perhaps to those uninitiated with the drama of John Ripley handicap cup ties, an 'early nights work'. But if your idea of a comfortable victory is scrambling home the winning goal in the 98th minute of a football match in which you've been under severe kosh then read on..

The evening started brightly enough. Comfortable wins for myself, Steve, Andrej and Brian overturned a -3½ handicap into a 4-3½ lead for us. Mike was struggling against some very solid play by his opponent, who held a two pawn advantage going into the endgame, but then again Giorgos looked to be cruising his way to victory via a king-side assault. However, Giorgos decided to age his team-mates considerably with a sac – but was it sound? Well, our facial expressions didn't seem to exude confidence! Meanwhile, miraculously, Mike had somehow equalised on material and, although his position was still worse, Mike made his opponent sweat it out for 90+ moves before the game finally collapsed in a drawn heap. Phew.. there's one out of the fire. However, Giorgos had reached an endgame in which he had a rook and pawn on the 7th rank for queen – Giogos had skillfully calculated that it was at least a draw, or possibly even a win, but the evenings' drama ended when his opponent ran out of time. One hell of a fight at the end, and much credit goes to our opponents, but we manage to progress to the next round!
