Aw Nuts!

HA3 were away at Syston (Against Syston 3. Syston 4 are in the same division).

The evening started with Stuart Hollingworth hitting Haka Dave over the head with a book and telling him 'don't look at me like that'. Apparently this knocked some sense into him as Dave was the only one of us to come away from Syston with anything resembling a point (or, actually a half point). Dave managed a miracle draw having been an exchange and three pawns down - he was the first to finish.

Drew started well against Stuart, but lost out in the end. Having been a pawn up from a Steinitz Defence Ruy Lopez, I proceeded to mess things up and lose the pawn back - followed a little later by a rook. Michael lasted the longest and was outplayed in a minor piece endgame by the ever solid Ron King.

I've heard of getting "booked up" but that's ridiculous!
