Upminster MA v Wanstead M – 30/01/2024

Geoff Cooper's report:

The minor league A team played Wanstead and got a credible 2-2 draw.

First to finish was Adam playing on board 2 for the first time. Unfortunately loosing after a sound kings pawn opening.

Daniel on the top had a Caro Kann opening and was level when a draw was agreed.

David on board 4 was next to finish and wore his opponent down leading to a win.

This left John on board 3 who was a pawn up but then his opponent got a passed pawn. In the following rook and pawn end game John  lost his advantage and a draw was agreed when each player had a king and a pawn.

So the match finished 2-2.
