Our experimental team including four new members found the going tough against Wimbledon D, although they missed a few chances for a better result.
|Richmond C||Wimbledon D|
|1||Masoud Molazadeh 129||0:1||Sean Ingle 138|
|2||Marcel Holowienko –||0:1||Pawel Slonczuk 133|
|3||Andreas Maroulis –||0:1||Robbie McCarthy 130|
|4||Rob Hunter –||0:1||Alex Boitier –|
|5||Paul Evans –||½:½||Alex Brett 103|
|6||Omar Anbagi 108||½:½||Omar Selim 68|
Paul’s game was unfinished at the end, but he appeared to be just about holding it, so a draw was agreed.
In the Battle of the Omars, our Omar had KN v KQ when his opponent’s flag fell. As it’s not possible to construct a checkmate position for the king and knight the game was declared drawn.
