Reivers v Gosforth Ivy

Posted by northman on October 29, 2017

The Reivers secured a narrow 3-2 win over Gosforth Ivy last Thursday; the results were as follows:

  1. Derek Harris v Geoff Harrison 1/2
  2. Peter Crichton v Kurt Moreby 1/2
  3. Ian Mackay v Robert Heyman 1-0
  4. Bruce Reed v Joe Chan 1-0
  5. Dave Humphreys v Gary Clarke 0-1

Bruce’s game, which he described as “wild”, finished early and successfully; Peter’s followed when both players confessed that neither knew who had the better position and agreed to a draw. Ian’s win over Robert Heyman left the team needing a half point from one of the remaining games on top and bottom boards ; both looked to be heading for safe draws but Dave, in time trouble, missed a tactic leaving Derek needing the draw to secure the match: with rook, knight and pawns against rook, bishop and pawns he managed to gain a pawn advantage but with time running short and mindful of the match situation he offered a draw which was accepted.
