"Time Waits For No Man"

HA3 had a good evening at Braunstone.

The first result in was a loss for Richard with the black pieces. I then beat John Oliver who had lost a couple of pawns early on. The last two games literally went the distance with both flags dropping. See the image at the end for the final position in Gordon's game. Bill's opponent refused a draw offer when both had only a few minutes left on the clock.

We ended with the same result as Leicester City against Liverpool the night before.

Here is my game against John Oliver:

Here was the final position from Paul and Gordon's game. White to move when the flag dropped.

Well done everyone,
