As a result, I did not get to see any of the HA1 match. There was a good result, however.

Meanwhile, HA3 played in the bar, and as there was an England football match on, things were a bit noisier than usual.
Gordon and Drew both finished with losses - Gordon had been material up.
Graham U got a decent result against the solid Reg Agger. I had a winning position, but was under time pressure (as always) and missed a mate. My opponent and I agreed a draw.

There were a couple more moves, which, in time trouble, I failed to record. My b-pawn dropped in the scramble.
The missed win was 58 Bc3 Rf3+ 59. gxf3 gxf3 60. Ra1#.
Fritz and John Manger both spotted it.
Next Tuesday, friendlies at the Heathcote Arms.
Well done everyone,
