Ashfield 1 v Gambit 1  29.3.17

Our team matched third placed Gambit with Louie Dong providing his usual lead cutting edge. He scored his third quick win in as many games. Mike Barnes was his latest victim. There were solid draws for Steve Burke, Andy Toothill and Neil Graham. Gambit levelled the match when Pete Mercs, exploiting Derek's dark square weakness, planted a Knight on g5, winning Derek's e-pawn and breaking into the heart of his position.

The recruitment of a top class Board 1 player has transformed the team's fortunes.

Result Ashfield 1 v Gambit 1        2.5 - 2.5
