CLUB NIGHT REPORT (Thurs 18th July 19)
Another night at Castlehill with the place full of juniors and some adults! Not much on with only a Random Knockout tie-break match and then a semi-final match.
Ed Walton 1, G.Atkins 0
This was a 15 minute tie-break match after both drew there match. Ed is now in the semi-finals against defending champion Ray Noble.
Ray Noble 1, Ed Walton 0
It was a close match with Ray missing the opportunity to win Ed`s Queen and the game. After that it was Ray who was on the wrong end of it and was staring defeat in the eyes! Ray decided to go for broke and luckily the pressure was racked up and Ed unfortunately for him, made a blunder (lost a Knight!) and resigned. That puts Ray the defending champion into the final again! Well played both, but Ray…missing winning the Queen and then strike it lucky at the end!
Black just played 30……..Nc7??
Ray missed a great move to win and instead played 31.f5?? Oh Ray if only you had played 31…what?
