Another hard day at the office for the Sax U1800 team, losing to second place Ipswich at Benhall last night. Mike managed to win on top board but the other three, Matthew, Hugo and Lee, were all heavily out-rated and duly lost. Two more matches left but it’s going to be hard to avoid the wooden spoon.
NB. The result was later revised to 2-2 after it was deemed that the Ipswich Board 2 was ineligible to play as he was clearly stronger than 1800.
