A team win comfortably

A fairly comfortable win for Bedford A against a heavily outrated Leighton Buzzard B team, aided by a no show from LB’s board 5 so a wasted evening for Nick, unfortunately.

I didn’t see a lot of the other games but gather James’s game (below) was a bit of a mess where he got his Q trapped but manage to get a fair amount of material for it and the game eventually ended in a repetition. I saw Ravi’s game end in a flurry of moves with the final one forcing the win for Ravi. Paul had a slight plus for throughout the opening then Black blundered at move 24 (see below).
