HA2 Win at Home Against Wigston 4

Graham B Reports:

All four of us struggled against weaker opposition. I played a poor opening, but thanks to a couple of tactical errors by Dave White I was able overcome my poor position and produced quite a nice win in the end.
John's game was always even, he tried to push for an advantage but had to settle for a draw.
Ray's game looked abit scrappy and he was probably worse when he accepted Ben's draw offer.
Mike went to the end, ( as usual), he never seemed to get into the game and went into the ending a Pawn down but crucially he had a passed pawn on b3 supported by his bishop, I think John would have had to give up his bishop to stop this pawn and then we would have had a very interesting game. Mike: rook and bishop against John's rook and 3 connected kingside pawns. Unfortunately, we didn't get to witness it as they agreed a draw with only a few minutes left on each clock.
