Knockout 2nd Round

33 players at the club tonight with 16 internal competitions being played. Joe Wilby ended up with a pretty checkmate while James Mansson overcame Peter Harbott. Dix Roberts and Nick Warren were fighting to the very end of the evening with just minutes left on the clock before agreeing a draw.

Some great chess was played and there were some interesting endings - Paul Kington did well to convert a Rook and Rook Pawn ending against Richard Barrowclough.
