Sax A earned a comfortable win over Sudbury at Benhall on Tuesday.  Simon held the draw comfortably on top board, settling for a perpetual check. Malcolm built up a small plus but his opponent managed to simplify and seemed to be headed for an even endgame when Malcolm managed to trick him to clinch the win. John had a smooth victory on board 3 and Sam also won, having gained an advantage, he survived a mutual time scramble to bring home the full point.

So Sax A stay in second place but close the gap on Bury B (who lost at Manningtree) to just 1½ points with two to go. These two are well ahead of the field so it looks like it will come down to a thrilling last match showdown at Bury at the end of the month.
