Welcome to Gordon who played his first competetive game for us. The best performance of the night was from Gary, who, although material down, put up a decent fight against Amber.
Michael started well, and had some well placed pieces, but overlooked an attack in the centre of the board and then had cause to regret not having castled.
Drew played against Peter, a new player for the Red Admiral with an Eastern European accent. Most of the time that Peter had used on his clock was from forgetting to hit the clock - he used hardly any thinking time at all. He might turn out to be a smidge stronger than 80.
On the night, Gordon was outplayed by Andy, but did fine with the clock and recording the moves.
