On the top board, Zoe Varney (114) played extremely well and managed to beat Joseph Truran (120), while Daniel Varney (111) had a long game on board two which he eventually lost.

David Sterrie (80) also lost on board three, but Susanna Bennett (11) stopped the rot on board four with a win.

The bottom two boards had Michaela Shakespear () and Lenora Ives ()– both of whom have only played once before for Cumnor. Although they both lost, they made a good game of it are likely to have learned something useful from the experience.

When he's not playing chess rather poorly for Cumnor Chess Club, Graham is normally talking a lot about computer security on his blog, or insisting people listen to his podcast. You can follow him on Twitter at @gcluley.
