We weren’t at full strength for our match against one of our main rivals for second place: Cavendish 1.
But no matter, we still managed a narrow win in spite of our grading disadvantage, thanks to wins from Gavin, Mike, Jonathan and Andrew along with draws from Julien, John and Martin.

Here‘s the B3 game. It’s always good to see one of my former (chess) pupils beating one of my brother’s former (English) pupils.
We’re now on 5/6, having only suffered the inevitable loss against Wood Green. Here’s to the rest of the season.
