Littlethorpe 1 2-3 Braunstone 1

A tight match on paper and so it proved over the board.  Boards 1, 4 and 5 were always tight and all ended drawn.  Mike came second best in a very sharp tactical battle with Paul Colburn, leaving me needing to win to save the match.  We should have drawn as I should have won on board 2 but I misplayed my sacrifice, as I seem to do with everything these days!  In the end, I wasn't so much lucky to draw but Jim must have felt sorry for me and gave me a draw even though I was totally busted!
