Another win for Bexhill 3!

Match report from our back up captain, Steve Merchant: (As Bill was on holiday.)

On January 27th, Bexhill 3 hosted Collyers 1 at home.

Our team in board order was Andy, Bill Luxton, Steve Merchant and Alan.

Alan was first to finish on board 4. His opponent played a strong defense but ultimately Alan secured a win.

Next to finish was Steve on board 3. The game was an intense and interesting and intense battle over a pawn, but in the end it settled equally in a position that looked very much like a draw. Steve offered a draw and his opponent accepted.

Next to finish was Andy on board 1. He held a commanding position throughout the game until a small inaccuracy allowed his rook to become trapped. Despite putting up a heroic battle with some passed pawns… he ultimately lost the game.

Finally, Bill finished on board 2. It was a close game through out, until his opponent made a mistake in the end game and Bill was able to take the point home for Bexhill.

Final score: Bexhill 2.5 – Collyers 1.5

Well done Bexhill on another win!
