Tough Challenge in the London League

Monday 9 April 2018
Drunken Knights 2 v Ilford 1

Division 2 table topping Drunken Knights 2 were going to be a challenge. As expected we were heavily out-graded but it went as far as our top board matching their lowest graded player! Having defaulted two boards before starting it was clear that a team result was very unlikely so it was an opportunity for those playing to throw caution to the winds and play for a win against higher rated opponents. In this vein David had an excellent win, Paolo threw everything into attack to obtain a draw and Aidan also gained an excellent draw. Everyone else played well and had opportunities in their games – an entertaining evening for all. Julian initially adjourned his game but after overnight deliberation gave it up as lost.
