At the risk of becoming predictable, I lost to Andy Carter after getting a knight trapped. Ray continued his run of fine form with an early win. Dave played Amber Carter (the Red Admiral's 10 year old Giga final champion)and turned down a draw, but then changed his mind after a couple more moves when he thought there might be trouble coming. John and Graham H had a very close game, but John was able to force home a win.

Well done everyone. This was RA2s first loss of the season. We play the Red Admiral again on Tuesday - this time, at our place and as part of the Junior League Cup.
