Richmond C v Kingston B 24-10-19

Another fantastic performance to report – and more great results from our new members.

Our TV C team match against Kingston B currently stands level with one game to finish.

Julian Bedale reports:

“Thanks to all who played, & particular congratulations to Marcel, who recovered from a piece & a pawn down against his opponent & has now registered his second successive match win.  Also to Andreas, who recorded his first win.

“Overall we obtained a good result against a side of tough opponents – & we are hopeful of Masoud’s game being agreed as a draw in the next day or so.”

Richmond C Kingston B
1 Eamon Rashid-Farokhi 144 0:1 Peter Roche 157
2 Masoud Molazadeh 129 ½:½ Stephen Moss 142
3 Marcel Holowienko – 1:0 Greg Heath –
4 Paul Evans – ½:½ Ljubica Lazarevic 134
5 Rob Hunter – 0:1 Adam Nakar 126
6 Andreas Maroulis – 1:0 Oliver Luen –

An impressive performance against a team who were on paper both stronger and more experienced. It’s good to see Adam Nakar, a former RJCC member, in action, even if he was playing for the wrong club!

Watch this space: I’ll update once further news of B2 is available (and, by the way, if you haven’t read Stephen Moss’s book The Rookie you really ought to do so).

Update (28-10-19): Board 2 has now been agreed drawn, making the match score 3:3.
