Cumnor 1 played the same starting 6 which had beaten Wantage 1 only 3 weeks before, so confidence was high. As tradition dictates Daniel was the first to finish with a win on the bottom board. I (Liam) was the next to go but I ended my night badly with a loss, mainly caused by Geoff playing very accurate and quick moves, poor piece co-ordination and some time trouble at the end. I might ask Father Christmas for an extra 10 minutes on my clock in my stocking this year.
Simon won for the third game in a row on the top board against Oscar just before Gareth lost his game on the board below.
Zoe confirmed at least a draw for the team with her win and Mark finished it off with a win on board 6. So at the halfway point in the season we have 3 wins and 3 losses out of the 6 games, click here for the table.
The next game for either team isn’t until 2015 and a quick reminder that the club is closed on 25/12 (Christmas Day) and 1/1 (New Years).
The last club night of 2014 therefore is Thursday 18/12 with an exciting game between Mark and Simon to decide the winner of the 2014 Players Cup on offer and maybe some Mince Pies if you are lucky!
If I don’t see you before please eat, drink and be merry!
