As close and tense as the gradings pointed to. Thibault’s ambitious sacrificial attack wasn’t quite sound, but as both players mishandled the complications, it could have been OK. But further pressing was too much and Euan took the point. Max defended well from a two pawn deficit, and a few slips by Bruce secured the half. Alan was his usual solid self to split the point with Paul, but Andy had every reason to be pleased with his enterprising play that led the experienced Peter astray and rescued the match draw.
Well done to the D team in getting on the scores board against a good side. All games will be on the TAFCA website soon http://tafca.co.uk/winter-league/
