The Scores after 4 Rounds.


N.Berry- J.Grant
Jonathan failed to make move 40 in a dead drawn game. 1-0 (time).

M.Andersen - A.Greet
First 1.e4 e5 game of the event produced a topical Berlin Defence.

Another good game by Andrew Greet who is treating us to some nice Chess.
Young Mads was giving a good account of himself but one slack move,
(47.Kf3? 47.Ke4 was better) and Andrew carved out the win with exact play.
First picking a loose White Knight and then weaving a Rook and Knight mating net.

D.Eggleston - A.Tate
David Eggleston scored his first win by treading very carefully
in refuting Alan Tate's planned pseudo sacrifice.(25...Nxe4).

The two White Knights kept the Black Queen and Rook at bay whilst
the Queen was itching for a chance to sac itself with Qxf8 and Rany8 mate.
I'm sure this idea flash in both players minds during their calculations.

In the end it was one of the brave Knights threatening
a check on h6 that finally undid Black. A good game.

C.McNab - N.Mikkelsen
An interesting game where Black can claim he had an edge but
Colin was not going to let it get it too large and guided
the game into a drawn Rook and pawn ending. -.

M.Mitchell - C.Thomson
Once again CSM rolls up his sleeves and gets stuck in.
This time it was an exchange sac to get the Black attack on the road
in a King's Indian v a solid looking White set up.

But alas there was no way in as Martin Mitchell covered
the weakness's and eventually turned the tide with some
no nonsense defending and a clinical counter-attack
