Under 120 League

St Albans v Little Heath

Author:  Keith Feldman

Date:  14 Dec 2012

On Board 1, Michael (Black) played the King's Indian defence to Keith's Queen's Gambit. Michael attacked by advancing his Pawns on the Kingside but, after careful defence by Keith, lost his Pawn on the h file. A neat Knight combination regained the Pawn for Black and a draw was agreed after 38 moves with level material.

On Board 2, Peter (Black) captured Mod's Rook and, after one of many possible forks, captured the remaining Rook. Checkmate by Black followed when Mod had only 3 minutes remaining on his clock (when Peter still had almost half an hour).

Stuart lost a short game on Board 3 and Rufus defaulted on Board 4 as he had to revise for a Frech test the next morning.
