Aberystwyth B played a depleted Carmarthen side at the Emlyn Cafe, Tanygroes on Monday 14th March, and secured a good result. On top board, Julie van Kemenade looked for complications against Gerry Heap, and only got herself into difficulties – it’s well known that the best approach against Gerry is to try to bore him to death, but that isn’t Julie’s natural game. Tony Geraghty got a good active position against Richard Thomas’s Queen’s Pawn Game, winning the exchange and retaining control until White shortened the game with a blunder. Sam Holman played vigorously against the higher-rated Robert Narayan-Taylor’s Hungarian Defence, using a version of the Fried Liver Attack that was even more effective than the original recipe to secure a quick win.With the default on Board 4, the match finished 3-1 to Aberystwyth.
