A steady start for all concerned. I got into a great position against Howard and set myself up for a sacrifice then got cold feet and my position was dead. Howard offered me a draw, i checked on the other games: Rob was better, John was even, and Ray a pawn down but solid. Then Mr Clay inadvertently sacrificied his queen so i shook my opponents hand and then Mr Bailey thought his queen needed sacrificing as well! Game over. Ray did his best to lose, but Brian just wouldn't let him! So a 3-1 victory.
