The first game to finish was Board 4 where Poulton`s new player was Jonathon Benson. An even opening led to a middle-game position where Deborah exchanged queens on f6 to make a mess of the black pawn structure. However more active play from black then seized the initiative and generated an attack winning a few pawns.
On Board 3 George generated a king side attack and won a couple of pieces due to powerful pins.
On Board 1 two experienced players of this league battled out a positional game and although Andrew won a pawn Ken ensured a draw with the opposite coloured bishops ending.
The best game was on Board 2 where on open game with unbalanced pawn structures produced tactical chances for both sides. Black possibly had the better chances but white defended well and eventually a draw was agreed in a level pawn endgame.
