HA3 Vs Braunstone 6
I made a stupid move on move 5 and Pat Reid was too good to let me get away with it. Things got much worse as the game progressed. I cheekily offered a draw after move 38.
This was the score over the boards. Drew scored his first win and Gordon made it two wins in a row. Tonight Graham Hewitt returned to Leicestershire Chess after a break of a couple of years. He lost on time to the rapidly improving Conor Reid.
|09 Oct||Heathcote Arms 3||v||Braunstone 6|
|2 - 3|
|1||B||119||Ross, Colin||0 - 1||Reid, Patrick||102|
|2||W||110||Hewitt, Graham||0 - 1||Reid, Connor||85|
|3||B||60||Harbidge, Drew||1 - 0||Frataczak, Edtya||60|
|4||W||43||Milner, Gordon||1 - 0||Li, Mark||60|
|5||B||40||Sanders, Gary||0 - 1||Khawaja, Okash||100|
There was a board order anomaly, however. This was completely unintentional and nobody noticed until play was under way. Okash should have played either board 1 or board 2 for Braunstone rather than board 5. The LMC has ruled that for the purposes of the match result, the board 5 result will be reversed i.e. the match result will read 3-2 in HA3's favour.
