Quadruple Champions

9th May 2017 - Downend & Fishponds vs Bath

Stephen Meek was first to finish but his win was quickly cancelled out with Lewis Martin's loss to Adam Musson. Downend's new Hungarian player Attila Reznak notched up a win on board 3, Jerry Humphreys then produced the customary draw leaving 4 boards to battle it out. Chris Russell died a slow death as his Rook was no match for the two minor pieces but Mike Brigden made full use of his queenside pawns to cancel out the loss of the exchange to give Downend another point. David Buckley held on for a draw by perpetual as clock pressure came into play, leaving Andrew Gregory needing to win to try and win the match on board count but Charlie Fry proved a cool customer as he saw out the game not without some scares though!
