BP Cup Semi Final – Bon Accord Bishops vs Peterhead

The BP cup semi-final between the Bon Accord Bishops and Peterhead took place on Tuesday 5th May. The Bishops were significant favourites by rating, but Peterhead were fielding a very good (and underrated) ringer in Callum Smith on board 3. The first game to finish was on board 4 where Dominic Troman won fairly quickly against Atharva Dabholkar. On board 3 Callum Smith duly won a complex game against Ian Grieve leaving Peterhead 2-0 up with two games to go. On board 1 Mike Cavanagh had a better position and more time against Chris Rose, and won fairly easily. The most interesting game was on board 2 where Malcolm MacMillan had a very good (quite possibly winning) position against Richard Jennings. Although Richard was in severe time trouble he managed to outplay his opponent and reached a drawish ending where each side had a pawn, a rook and a bishop. Only needing half a point to win the match Malcolm unfortunately put his bishop en-prise, and Richard checkmated him with less than 2 minutes left on the clock.

The 2-2 draw leaves the Bishops going through to the BP cup final on board count.

1 W Mike Cavanagh 1856 1 0 Chris Rose 1435
2 B Richard Jennings 1820 1 0 Malcolm MacMillan 1105
3 W Ian Grieve 1445 0 1 Callum Smith 1057

BP Cup Semi Final – Bon Accord Knights vs Teflon Sharks

The BP cup semi-final between the Bon Accord Knights and the Teflon Sharks took place on Tuesday 5th May. The Sharks were only able to field three players, so the Knights won board four by default. Eric Davidson evened the score with a fine attacking win with black against John Ewen. This left the Knights needing at 1.5 points from the top two games, but the board 2 game between Ross Brennan and Ricky Telford ended in a blocked position where neither could make progress, and on board 1 Duncan Harwood could only draw a pawn down against Jeremy Mitchell. The 2-2 draw leaves the Teflon Sharks going through on board count.
