The first result was a loss for Michael against Alan Butler, this was followed by a victory for Ray against Rich Davis. Pete had looked strong for a long time against John Colver with connected queenside passed pawns provoking his opponent into some desparate tactics leading to a win for Pete. Much the same then happened on my board except that it was my opponent with the connected passed pawns and i was slowly, but surely losing. My beautiful, but fatally flawed, queen sacrifice failed to come off (although it did result in Mick looking fairly horrified for a moment). Including the bonus, the final score ended 3-2 to us.
