On Wednesday the 20th of September, Rushall travelled to Bushbury for a Birmingham Division 6 match.
The result was 4.5 to 1.5 in favour of Rushall.
Board 1: Steve Wilcox of Rushall had a massive advantage grade of 29. 148 vs 119. He managed to attack his opponent and his opponent was unable to find the satisfactory moves.
Board 2: Rich Wiltshir of Rushall got a pawn and soon the game. He converted well and it was very smooth.
Board 3: John Grant unfortunately attacked his opponent without getting the correct prior development done. Our only loss, but it was the longest game, therefore showing John put up a real fight.
Board 4: Peter Leary builds for an attack, but doesn’t neglect his pieces, so his attack is not as powerful. Finally, a draw was agreed, and this was a well-played game.
Board 5: Alexander Jarvis got a pawn up, and thankfully smoothly won the game with elegance.
Board 6: David Jarvis had an unbalanced game, but it was very interesting. However, David had perfect technique, and won easily.
Overall, a great result for Rushall.
A great start to the season, just like the last: it will be interesting if we make sure that we get the great start, if not beat the one of last time.
