Oadby Vs HA3

Haka Dave was the first to finish with an early checkmate. In the post game analysis, Dave described this as a sucker punch, but all his pieces seemed to be working together and had been pointed at his opponent's king.
Michael had been material up and looked the favourite in his game, but let this slip away. There were some serious tactical chances focussing on the f7 square in the opening. Drew was struggling from early on. Gordon had been even well into his game, but then gave a rook away.

I was able to grind out a win against Don Candlin. Last to finish was Ray who agreed to Mike Thornton's offer of a draw in an even position.
Well done everyone. This Oadby side (although missing its usual top board player) was one of the strongest we have met this season.
