Tans v Forest Hall D

Posted by Tim W on March 12, 2020

This was a tough match. Forest Hall D’s matches have been close and this was no exception. Jonny & Dave lost relatively quickly, Derek won, comfortably (?) and David swindled Stuart Skelsey, which left Tim with a lost ending and probably a lost match. Help. However when all is lost, you can play risky moves, and I managed first to activate two knights, giving my opponent a lot of forks to think about, and then the game ended in a draw by perpetual, each side having about about 10 secs left on the clock.
Particular thanks to David who has won all five of the matches he has played for the Tans.

Newcastle Uni v Tans

Posted by Tim W on February 29, 2020

By far the most interesting game of the evening was Derek’s game against
Shawn Edgar Miranda. Particularly the ending, a tense Q,R and 3/4 pawns
which saw mate threats for both sides, Q & R face-offs where both sides looked
vulnerable. It seemed hard to me just watching, but I was not aware of any
mistakes made by either side. The game finished when Derek forced a perpetual
check. I think he had to in order to avoid a mate behind his own pawns on the h
file.

Tans v S Shields B

Posted by Tim W on February 14, 2020

What a strange evening. As I opened the front door of the Parish Hall, the alarm went off.
Absolutely deafening, but nobody in Corbridge seemed too concerned.
After a few phone calls, the caretaker arrived and turned the alarm off, but not before I had
had gone into panic mode.
Many thanks to Tim Barmby & John Morgan who both played at short notice.

Gosforth Salters v Tans

Posted by Tim W on January 29, 2019

The Tans had to field a weakened team, but called in David Wrigley to help.
The match went right down to the wire. Playing without increments and needing to win, David Wrigley’s game went to a tense endgame scramble, his speciality.
Elsewhere Tim & Peter had tame draws. Dave Foster Jnr was heavily outgraded on Board 5, played well, but two pawns lost in a sharp exchange proved fatal.
Dave Humphreys had the better of an awkward Q, R & pawn endings, but was caught by a perpetual check, a fine draw that could so easily have been a win.
Although Gosforth Salters are bottom of the league they are a strong team, and this is a point won, rather than one lost. Well played all, especially David Wrigley and Dave Humphreys.
