The A Team paid a successful visit to Stowmarket, coming away with a convincing 3-1 win.
Lacking our normal board 1 player, everyone had to step up, and Mike was drafted in to prop up the bottom. In fact he was, for once, the first to finish when his opponent went astray and he was able to win a vital pawn and transition into an easily won minor-piece endgame.
Malcolm, on top board, had the toughest fight, only going down to his much higher rated opponent in a R+P endgame. John made up for this loss by scoring an excellent win, and Sam rounded off the evening with an exciting and well-executed attack against his opponent’s King.
