Excellent win by Tynemouth D!

Tuesdays at 7 pm - Hunting Lodge, Whitley Bay

Tynemouth D put in a superb performance against Leam Lane Comets to win 3 and a 1/2 to a half. We had wins by Chris Smith, Joel Tofield-Brown and Andrew Perella. Kazam Khosravi-Nik achieved a credible draw. Well done all! The position below is from the board 1 game between Chris Smith and Irina Briggs. Chris Chris has played superbly to get this completely dominating position of his major pieces having complete control of the f file. Chris finished the game by 1 ..... Rf1+ 2 kg2 Rxe1 3 Rxe1 Qf2 4 Kh3 Qxe1 0-1

When looking at this position, I - Gary - was looking at 1 ... Qf3 which I thought was an unstoppable mate! But White can avoid the mate by 2 Qxe6 and then 3 Qh3. But like Chris's move, White wins a Rook. Antonio came up with a lovely sequence of moves 1 ..... Rf1 2 Kg2 Qf3 3 Kh3 Rf6! and here White has to give up his Queen to prevent mate! Out of interest, Shreddar's choice of moves is Antonio's so well spotted Antonio!

The game below is the board 3 match with a convincing win by Andrew Perella.
