Local derby night at the club, with C v D team match and a heavyweight Club Championship game.
A Borwell 1836 0-1 E Spencer 2025
A game Alan will quickly blot out, as an unfortunate blunder lost a piece after just 15 moves. No way back at this level.
Dundee C 4-0 Dundee D
L Archip 1529 1-0 Z Swaczyna 1241
R Flood 1509 1-0 M Whisson 948
T Harley 1439 1-0 N Carroll 948
R Burnett 1374 1-0 R Bremner
A slightly harsh scoreline on the D team, but at least the C team found their wings in time. ZZ’s Maroczy-type setup didn’t quite bind enough, Max lost too much time with his Scandinavian, Norrie’s rather passive structure caved against Trevor, and Ross allowed too many weaknesses round his king. The D team are punching above their weight in this division, and this setback shouldn’t dishearten them too much.
A reminder that due to boiler works in the church there will be no club night next week, 28th Jan. We return Feb 4th.
