Win Against Upminster

A decent win for Ilford in Essex Division 2,  though the score line rather flattered us.

Jason got lucky against Rob Iannetta who threw his game away when, a pawn up thinking he was winning a knight, left a rook en pris. We were also fortunate on Board 8  when Johal, who with a  pawn one move from promotion, made a disastrous Rook move overlooking a simple Queen check which forked King & Rook, and Umar had the win. Our only loser was new recruit Julian Hudson who had a tough evening with his King stuck in the centre, Khoda’s strong attack won him the game.

Jef had an easy win as Bigg’s queenside castling was dismantled with a Q&R checkmating attack, and Syd won the exchange and swapped pieces into a won endgame. Tom was inferior, but his strong Bishop and queenside pawns paid dividends as he raced a pawn home to win. Neville had a tsrong attack against Aidan Corish’s King but overlooked the winning of a knight in the endgame and it cost him a half. Anthony Kent’s Kings Gambit petered out and the offer of a draw from Black was accepted.

Played 3 in Essex League : won 1, drawn 1, lost 1.
