A B-team looking for their first win of the season had another chance against Haverfordwest B on Monday 19th November at the Emlyn Cafe, Tanygroes. On Board 1, I was playing a new opponent in John Miller, whose French Defence led to an exciting position with both sides attacking on opposite flanks. A piece sacrifice gave him the initiative, and he was able to take advantage through more accurate play. Meanwhile, James Cook was several pawns up against Jan Sendall, and looked to be comfortable before allowing some dangerous counterplay, which, fortunately for him, didn’t come to anything. Tony Geraghty’s game was also difficult, and he let Robbie Coles back in a couple of times before finally prevailing in the rook and pawn ending. Only captain Ian Finlay on fourth board had an easy evening, as Margaret Baron gave away pieces freely before allowing mate. 3-1 to Aberystwyth.
