Tans v Jesmond Knights

Posted by Tim W on March 24, 2017

Another close match. Neither side was at full strength, and maybe Tynedale were marginally stronger.

First to finish was Tim, who offered a draw after a torrid opening petered out. Maybe I should have persevered, but I was just glad to to get anything. Mariana seemed to have an awkward position with Chris’s Queen well placed on d6, and seemingly in control, but Chris couldn’t find a way through, and a draw was agreed. Peter was on the difficult end of a Bishop and 6(?) pawn endings, Liam had chances but a draw was agreed when he ran short of time. Gary once again carried the team, another fine win, and I believe a Rook sacrifice. David enjoyed his game, and gave John plenty to think about after a difficult opening. Sadly for the Tans, his loss meant the match was drawn.

Even though the Tans have 8 points from 9 matches, they are still not safe. The table shows 8 of the 11 teams all bunched together, with the title still up for grabs, and relegation undecided.
