Ilford were stronger on the bottom 6 boards. These games all finished first giving, us a strong 4.5 – 1.5 start. David Millward’s game went 1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 e5 3. BC4 a6? 4. Qh5 and black was already losing a pawn


Anthony Kent had a double-edged Sicilian Dragon, going …..15 e5 (below) to liven things up. Game went 16. Nxb  axB 17. Bxb Ke7 and black has 2 pawns for the piece and the advantage . Computer likes 17. Qxd for equality.


Good win for Paolo Casaschi on board 3 gave Ilford the match. We eventually lost hard fought matches on boards 1 and 2.

Chris Fegan fighting hard in his board 1 match which went right to the end:
