On Thursday, HA2/3 played away at Loughborough. On paper, Loughborough were far stronger giving us a huge handicap advantage. Gary and Drew had their work cut out and both lost quite early.
I managed a win against Sam Gallant in a really sharp Ruy Lopez. Having won a rook early on, my queenside was undeveloped and my kingside came under attack and things could easily have gone in favour of my opponent.
Ray then drew with Terry Adcock.
