Matches Cov Chess 3 Nov

The first team did well with John Naylor winning convincingly, my game is given below - also a win and Jonathan had another quick win which we will try and get on the blog asap. Sadly Martin resigned when he lost a rook admitting that he had forgotten that Knights can move backwards !

The B team did well too, winning 2.5 1.5 also against Cov Chess. I saw Nigel and Malcolm won their games - not sure about where the half came from.

C team lost but it was good that James Mendes returned to his winning ways. Chris Pegler took her game down to an ending where she was the exchange down. This is the normal 'grind' of chess, Chris, so hope you didn't find it too difficult!
