A vital draw for Bexhill 3

On Friday 16th February our 3rd team had a home match V East Grinstead 2.

Our team, in board order was Luke, Bill T, Jo and Ben.

Luke lead the way with a fine win, in which he applied pressure from early onхand eventually forced a resignation.

I had a long match on board 2 with time running short missed a chance for a draw and lost my game.

Jo on 3 looked as though he had chances but eventually his opponent was able to make use of a passed pawn and Jo had to resign.

Ben’s game on 4 came down to a complex end game which looked drawish but his opponent made a very uncharacteristic error which cost him a rook and the game.

The final score of 2 each keeps our hopes up of avoiding relegation.
