Michael had been material up and looked the favourite in his game, but let this slip away. There were some serious tactical chances focussing on the f7 square in the opening. Drew was struggling from early on. Gordon had been even well into his game, but then gave a rook away.
I was able to grind out a win against Don Candlin. Last to finish was Ray who agreed to Mike Thornton's offer of a draw in an even position.
Well done everyone. This Oadby side (although missing its usual top board player) was one of the strongest we have met this season.
