London League – Comprehensive win against Metropolitan

London League D3 East, Metropolitan 2 v Ilford 1 75min+10sec
15 June 2022 – Tom Barton

After being walloped last match by DHSS 1-7 we turned this around to thrash Metropolitan 7-1. In both matches the grading advantage proved decisive.

Aidan’s opponent failed to show so after a 60 minute wait he claimed the default. Venkatesh was next to finish with a win and Neville drew after playing a provocative “wing” opening gambit. Rahul looked to be in control and winning but his opponent fended him off to take it into an endgame. Anurag drew, Taha won and that left three boards which went to late in the evening. Rahul, well ahead on the clock, got the better of his endgame to win. I managed to get a win from what I think was a drawn position and Dlawar broke through to wrap up the thumping win.
