The Brynamlwg Tavern will be closed next Tuesday, 18 April, so there will be no chess that night.

Aberystwyth A continued their strong run in this year’s Dyfed League with a home win against Gwyddbwyll.com at the Brynamlwg Tavern on Tuesday 4 April. On top board, Rudy van Kemenade won a pawn against Iwan Griffiths in an Italian Game, and Black’s two bishops were not enough compensation; Rudy won on time, but was dominating the ending anyway. Adam Watkin-Jones, playing a Sicilian Defence, had reached a level position with only major pieces and pawns left, when Owen Llywelyn blundered, dropping his otherwise defensible b-pawn and letting the Black pieces in for a quick win. Ian Finlay was under pressure in a Queen’s Gambit against Tegwyn Jones; it looked as if he could hold, but he fell into a nasty trap, and his position abruptly collapsed. Sam Holman won an exchange early on against Emyr Llywelyn, but it was his kingside pawns, charging down the board, that really did the damage; White’s attempts at a mate on the other wing never looked realistic. The match finished 3-1 to Aber.If only we could get some transport for our away matches, this could be a good year for the team.
