4NCL Online – Mixed Avengers Fortunes

The 1st team demolished Sussex Starlings 4-0.  Martin, Panagiotis and Ed always looked comfortable.  However Kyan, under the cosh for most of the game, was fortunate that his opponent made a present of his queen during late middle game time pressure.

The 2nd team scraped home against West is Best B, by the narrowest possible margin.  The 2nd team were leading 2-1, however in our remaining game Geoff faced a daunting task in a clearly lost endgame.  Somehow Geoff held on to give us a 2.5-1.5 victory.  No match was ever saved by resigning!

The 3rd team faced the Irish Junior team, St Benildus D, who overcame considerably higher rated opponents in rounds 1 & 2.  Round 3 proved no different.  Although on paper clear favourites, we found ourselves 0.5-2.5 down after 3 games.  However, a nice thematic win by William confined the deficit to a respectable looking 1.5-2.5.
