Gambit 3 v A2  22.1.19

We expected and got a close game. Lower and top boards were shared. Peter won very quickly. Nigel hit back. John had a very good win over David. Jerry squared the match, the result hinged on my game with Keith. Keith outplayed me in a Rook ending and deserved to win. I was saved by the guillotine time control. He was on the brink of victory, but with 30 seconds left accepted my timely draw offer.

We drove back home on the A60 with a  point. Drives home after away defeats are less pleasant experiences.  

1 Onos Kofi-Ofuator 0-1  Jerry Herrington
2 John Huthwaite      1-0  David Levens
3 Keith Roper            draw Phil Morgan
4 Peter Gorecka- Marshall 1-0 Bob Taylor
5 Gary Hopkinson       0-1 Nigel Wright

Result 2.5 - 2.5
