Richmond C’s third match of the season saw a visit to Hounslow where we were faced with opponents who outgraded us on the top three boards.
Huw Williams reports:
Paul had a quick game and lost. I was down two pawns, but managed to win one back at the end and my opponent offered a draw. Colin lost a close game, then Rob won his game. Masoud was a pawn up, but with opposite bishops and a draw was agreed. Our last chance was Omar and he had a rook v bishop with six pawns each. As soon as Omar’s rook reached the seventh rank with check, his opponent resigned.
