HA1 Win in Major League Cup

A weaker than usual HA1 travelled to Willowbrook with a one point handicap head start. The first two results in were wins for Graham and Dave - settling the match in our favour. I had dropped a pawn in the middlegame and was slowly, but surely outplayed in the endgame as i attempted an unsuccesful save. John offered Paul Deacon a draw and this was accepted.

Towards the end of the evening, i received a text from Haka Dave. HA3 had won at Market Harborough in the Minor - a Tremendous result.

I will let Dave fill in the details.

An excellent evening for our club.

Next week - On Tuesday, HA3 play away against Syston 4. Syston would like to play 5 boards.
HA2 also play on Tuesday, but are at home against Wigston 4. On Thursday, HA1 play away against Wigston 3.

Well done everyone.
