Round 3 Saturday 16 Jan

Ashfield-Breadsall 1 v Warwickshire Select 2

A bad day at the office for the senior AB team against a team only slightly stronger on paper. The loss of the top 4 boards sunk our team. The bright spots were John Garnett's win and Derek Jarvis' draw. Result 1.5 -4.5

Iceni 1 v Ashfield-Breadsall 2

A narrow defeat for our second team against possibly the strongest team in the division. Neil Graham continued his winning play in the 4 NCL, and there were also creditable draws for Bob Taylor, Richard Truman and Maurice Hill.
Result 3.5 - 2.5

Round 4 Sunday 17 Jan

Surbiton v AB 1

The Sunday team hit back well. Despite Paul Madden's top board loss, there were wins for Jonah Willow, Peter Mercs and John Garnett, the latter completing a week-end double. Draws for Derek and Steve sealed a comfortable win. Result 2-4

Oxford 3 v AB 2

AB2 made the most of a a significant grading advantage. Wins for Richard Truman, David Levens and Maurice Hill. Draws for Bob Taylor, David Flynn and Neil Graham. Neil was unbeaten over the week-end but his FIDE rating of 1825 will not have benefited from his draw to Aristotelis Tselos, FIDE rating 1372. I'm surmising he's an improving junior  of the sort Neil hates to play.  Result  1.5 - 4.5
