4 Duncan Chandley 0 – 1 S Hayman

5 Roy Burrows 0 – 1 K Ye

Match Result East Cheshire 1 1/2 – Ashton 3 1/2

A good night’s chess. Roy spoke warmly about his 8yr old opponent who played swiftly and impressed Roy. Duncan had a winning position when I looked and then somehow had the tables turned on him by another young opponent – hard luck!

I think Hartley was relieved to get a draw and I managed a winning end game to defeat one member of the Chatys family. Geoff C played the elder Chatys and after being up against it suddenly scared his opponent with a strong attack on his K at the end. Despite his flourish ….it wasn’t to be and he eventually had to resign.
