Bon Accord A 10.5 – 1.5 Leeds University Bon Accord B 3.5 – 10.5 Manchester University B

Bon Accord A beat Leeds University 10.5-1.5.

I got completely out-prepared by my (2100 FIDE) opponent, Robert Starley, in the first game but won with a nice pseudo-queen sacrifice in the second game (https://www.chess.com/live/game/4687299869). Julius was lucky to escape with a draw after chucking a piece in the first game but won nicely in the second. Everyone else won both games.

Bon Accord B lost to Manchester B. There were some technical difficulties getting set up on chess.com but these will get resolved with practice. Thank you to Alisdair for agreeing to be B team captain.

Ross’s game, converting the advantage of the bishop pair into a promising rook endgame and eventual win can be found here:
