With these two Lytham teams riding high in Div B, this was a crucial encounter. First to finish was John Regan's game against Colin Wilks - a draw was agreed in a balanced position. Second to finish was an exciting game between myself and Ray - Ray played an inventive sacrifice in order to create a disturbance in Black's king position but Phil had a saving resource which eventually led to the tables being turned. Ben and Dennis played out a complex endgame with queens and pawns, eventually agreeing a draw. Dave Aspinall and Lynne Morrison played a Sicilian - it seemed for a while that Dave might have had an edge and a more active position but Lynne consolidated well and was a clear pawn ahead but with slightly less time on the clock agreed a draw. Another spirited performance by the 3rd team - the result could easily have gone the other way.
