The Dyfed League is off to a slow start this year, and, with several players about to take part in the European Chess Club Cup in Novi Sad, Serbia, this state of affairs looks likely to continue for a while. However, the A team has had their first match,at the Emlyn Cafe, Tanygroes on Wednesday 26th October, against Carmarthen. In the absence of Carmarthen’s formidable top board, Gerry Heap, Rudy van Kemenade was a strong favourite against Paul Orton, but things didn’t work out that way. White had a strong attack against a Sicilian, but Black’s efforts to find counterplay led to a very sharp position in which it was easy to go wrong. Rudy missed a win of the Black queen as he miscalculated a variation and walked into a mate for a rare defeat. Adam Watkin-Jones was also much higher-rated than his opponent, Richard Thomas, but again the result was unexpected: in a quiet middlegame with opposite-coloured bishops Black could see nothing more promising than a draw. Normal service was resumed on the bottom two boards. Robbie Wright got an advantage from Robert Narayan-Taylor’s dubious opening, but it faded after a while. With the position still complex, though, Black eventually went wrong and lost material. Adam Robinson’s Modern Defence brought him some kingside pressure against Steve Tanner, who lost a piece and was soon facing a mating attack. Not quite an upset, then and a strong Aber team will be relieved to have come through 2½-1½
