One Step Beyond

Played at Macclesfield Chess Club last evening -

Macclesfield              V             Marple               Charnley Cup Semi-Final     09/01/2017

1 R Shaw                  0.5/0.5      M Fernandez
2 C Davison              0.5/0.5      G Trueman
3 D Risley                 0.5/0.5       C Baker
4 G Laurence           0.5/0.5       A Hall
5 P Cattermole           1-0           D Preen
6 C Sizeland                1-0          T Brown


Progress to the Charnley Cup Final proved to be tantalisingly just out of Marples reach yesterday as they were edged out by Macclesfield in a match played in a very friendly spirit.
Once again the odds were against us as we were outgraded on four of the six boards, in some cases by  a wide margin.
In the last game to finish Toby was desperately unlucky to lose a long struggle in which he had dominated for long periods against a very  experienced opponent who was  graded 42 points higher. By this point I had managed to work out that even if Toby had won we would still have been eliminated on tie-break.
Thanks to all who played/drove , particularly Toby who stood in at very short notice.
Please note - the next A team match away to Stockport B scheduled for 24 January has been postponed at Stockports request. Our next match is at home to the same opponents on the 2nd of February.
