Tans v Forest Hall C

Posted by Tim W on January 18, 2019

The NCA Second division is a competitive league, both teams put out strong teams, and this was a hard fought match.
Briefly, Derek lost a rook, a mistake with little time left on the clock, defending against a marching passed pawn.
My (Tim’s) opponent resigned in a position with chances for both sides. It seemed premature, but he was about to lose the exchange, and I think he just didn’t know what to do. He could have tried to exploit an open file and an exposed king, and then play for either a win or a perpetual check.
James won, his pawn ending technique proving better than his young opponent.
Ian surprised me a little, he accepted a draw, and from 4 boards away I thought he had chances in a Bishop(same colour)& Pawns ending.
Peter also surprised me, I thought he was losing, but suddenly appeared with a win. Not sure what happened.
So a good win, 3½-1½, and some rather odd games.
