We played our second match of the season in the Fuller league last night and again came away with an excellent draw against the much higher graded team of Petts Wood :-
Jack (as black) played really well to have a draw against a much higher graded player for his first game of the season. In a very tight game (where white for most of it had a slight advantage) Jack held onto his position and in the end a draw was agreed on move 22 in a very even position. Even the latest version of Fritz cannot decide who has the better position. In the next post is the game analysed by Fritz from blacks point of view in the game.
The Intro Cup team finally played a match after weather forced the cancellation of the first match and the result was a 3-1 win over Lewisham with Ken Grist, Peter Houching and Phil Broughton all winning. So Peter’s first match as captain was successful and the club are still undefeated in all leagues this season, having won the first two Harvey Cup matches against Beckenham and Lewisham and drawn the first two Tom Fuller Cup matches against Petts Wood and Lewisham.
