Tans v Jesmond Knights

Posted by Tim W on April 13, 2018

The last match of the season and another fine performance from the Tans, but once again no match points. Outgraded by an average of 39 points, the Tans lost 1½-3½, but it was very even, and although the match score was probably fair, it could easily have been better for the Tans . All fought well and hard, but particular congratulations to David, who was disappointed to only draw with Merim Bilalic, a fide master graded 2267 (about ECF 210).

Thanks also, to Bruce (outgraded 157-111)  for a for a fine fighting display against John Turnock, very even right to the end, when John forced a rook’s pawn through. Finally many thanks to all who have turned out for the Tans this year.

Gosforth Empire v Tans

Posted by Tim W on February 20, 2018

Heavily outgraded, the Tans went down to a 4-1 defeat. All our opponent were graded above 170, with the top three boards over 200. But all games were well contested, no-one was embarrassed, and Peter & Gary picked up excellent draws.

Gosforth Salters v Tans

Posted by Tim W on December 19, 2017

An entertaining match, once again the Tans were outgraded. With the score 1-1, from draws for Gary and Ian, Tim produced a swindle that almost won his game, and  the match score looks promising (1½-1½). But then David lost from a good position, and it was left to Derek to rescue  a draw.  On paper this looks a good result, but it could easily have been worse (or better). Best results of the night Derek and Gary.

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.

Durham City v Tans

Posted by Tim W on March 9, 2017

The first division is very unpredictable, we have lost some matches we hoped to win, and this was one that on paper we might expect to lose. Three of our opponents are graded above 200, Szymon on board 4 is  179 and Robin is 155. So a glorious result for the Tans, and pride of place goes to Mariana, Gary & Peter.

Gosforth Empire v Tans

Posted by Tim W on February 7, 2017

Thrashed. Not one of our better performances, with only Klauss having much to be proud of. He lost from a drawn position after going for a win. Fritz rated my game against Mike better than it felt over the board. An English / Kings Indian gave Mike lots of queen side pressure, and I eventually I wilted. Well played Gosforth.
