As the season draws to a close, the B team now have their third win of the season, this time against Aber also had the rare luxury of a home match actually played at home – that is, the St David’s Club. (Nearly all our matches are played at The Emlyn Cafe, Tanygroes.) On top board I experienced the mixed emotions of a player on the receiving end of a fine combination. Iwan Griffiths showed great coolness and precision in calculating his attack. John seemed under some pressure against Owen Llywelyn’s Caro-Kann, but the players agreed a draw in a position where White still had to tread carefully. Ian picked up a piece early on against Tegwyn Jones and played very cautiously thereafter; he was only beginning to look confident when his opponent lost on time. Finally, Tony played a strong positional game against Emyr Llywelyn seizing control of most of the board and taking material when the chance arose. 2½-1½ to Aber.
