The match on Sunday saw e2e4.org.uk 1 paired against Cheddleton 1. We were outgraded on every board, in most cases by a clear margin, so it was no surprise that we went down 6.5-1.5. Alexey Slavin and Peter Sowray managed draws against Jonathan Hawkins and Keith Arkell respectively. In my game, I secured a draw with White against Robert Bellin. The game was not hugely eventful. I obtained a slight advantage, but could not find a way to improve my position, and so took the safe route of a repetition.
I give the game below with some brief comments.
