A third win out of three matches for HA2. I think Mike Cowley was first to finish (with a win), followed by a draw for Pete on board 1. I was in my usual time trouble, but was able to convert the full point. At this point, Ray was an exchange and two pawns down and was unable to stop the inevitable.

Graham Hewitt made an appearance for club night - the first since his recent surgery, and Richard, Drew, Graham U, and Bill Roberts (friend of Gordons who was an active player in Leicestershire up until the 1980s) were also up for some friendlies.
Next week, HA3 are at home to Syston 4 on Tuesday 5th November, and HA1 are also at home against Ashby 2.
Below is my game against John Walker.
Well done everyone,
