Lytham won the toss, but opted for Black on odds. This helped Ken against Graham, as he was soon able to restrict Graham's progress. Nevertheless, the end-game was tricky, as Ken had R and B and one pawn, against R and 3 pawns. However, with the B in the middle of the board, Ken's R could win a pawn with check, and Graham resigned. Dave had to play his regular friendly opponent Colin. He has had the upper hand against him recently, and the sequence of wins continued. New player Jonathan continued with his promising performances for Poulton with a win against Keith, as did Phillip against John, with some impressive tactical moves.
