CLUB NIGHT REPORT: Thurs 30th Jan 20
Another busy night at Castlehill Chess Club Dundee. We had one TAFCA league match on, four Club competition matches and two Ladders sections as well, plus a few skittle games, etc.
Result – Div 1
Castlehill A 3½, Kirkcaldy A ½
Unfortunately Kirkcaldy came a man down after Stuart Blyth (Hope your feeling better soon Stuart!) took unwell on the night. This was a shame as it`s a hard thing to go 1 – 0 down before you even start the match!
On board 1, Andre Babin & Russell Kynoch served up an exciting draw between two very strong and evenly matched players!
Board two saw Dariusz Kosznik win quickly after a valiant try by Branislav Sudjic.
Board 3 saw Andy Rowe & Peter Selbie nearly bludgeon each other to a stalemate. All Castlehill A and Andy needed was a draw to win the match. In the end Peter decided to take matters into his own hands to try and force a win, but to no avail and Andy got the win he was not expecting in the end!
Well played Castlehill A, unlucky Kirkcaldy A. It was always going to be an up hill struggle a man down!
Result – Round 2
Cameron Wilson (1323) 0, (1500)e Euan Murray 1
It was a cracking match and both players had chances, but in the end a slight error by Cameron let Euan take the spoils!
Results – Prelims
Daniel Coleman (1056) 1, (1164) Innes Ford 0
Great result for Daniel!
Norman Waugh (1161) 0 , (1529) Keith Rose 1
Ramit Kanodia J12 (882) 0, (1526) Fergus Milne 1
Fergus did not have it his own way and Ramit made Fergus work for the win, right down to the wire time wise!
There were two sections tonight with the top 4 players in one and the rest in section 2.
Ray Noble had an awful TAFCA Allegro in Perth on Monday past, but was on fire tonight as he finished on 2½ points and undefeated against very strong players!
Standings on night – Section One
1st Ray Noble 2½
2nd= Michael Dugdale & Jan Barron-Majerik 1½
4th Keith Rose ½
In section 2, Daniel Hayes, Arthur Grant & Colm Hawkins all finished in equal 1st place on 2 points, with Max Whisson in last having only played 1 game!
Standings on night – Section Two
1st= D.Hayes; Arthur Grant & Colm Hawkins 2 points each
4th Max Whisson Zero points.
That`s it for another night and what a night it turned out to be in the end! Lets do it all again next week!
