East Grinstead ‘A’ v Hastings & St Leonards ‘D’

East Grinstead ‘A’ 3-2 Hastings & St Leonards ‘D’

Heavily outgraded on all boards Hastings Fourths’ made East Grinstead Firsts’ work hard to achieve their first win of the season.

The rallying call went out to throw everything at East Grinstead and attack as we had nothing to lose and potentially facing a 5-0 defeat and the team didn’t  disappoint. Top Gun Derek Cosens continues in dazzling form and comfortably outplayed his opponent with so many choices of where to attack either up the middle or on the flanks following his opponents acceptance of the gambit pawn in the French Defence, which wasn’t a gambit in the end. A monster Rook on the 7th dominated the middle game and not only did Derek win over the board but very comfortably on time to. 207 grading points for Derek, do we have a potential FIDE Master in our team?

Mason on board two, took his opponent, Robert Fisher (not the former world champion)  out of familiar opening lines and played a quick f5 in a schmid benoni like game then gave up a Rook for a Bishop+Pawn to rip open the enemy King position but was unable the capitalise on the opportunity, and started to lose more material to the experienced player later in the game

Opposite side castling was the name of the game in Robert Smart’s game and Robert got off to a flying start with his attack first but unfortunately on the wrong wing, nonetheless a very doubled edged game that had his opponent not found the right moves could have gone the other way. Why do your opponents never make the moves you expect them to make? It’s just not cricket! Anyway a simple pawn promotion concluded the game with checkmate.

Board four saw an usual game and one you’ll not see in MegaBase. Greg with the black pieces had the H file opened and his King uncastled in a block of pawns on the Kingside, fortunately his opponent didn’t castle either and after a number of moves the position was very blocked. Greg then said to his opponent, I don’t know what to move, would you like a draw? The draw was declined but Greg went on to find the breakthrough he needed and with the threat of his Queen getting in behind enemy lines resignation followed. First to finished a real lift to the team as we went 1-0 up.

Out of the traps quickly and having much the better of the opening with rapid development but not quite finding the killer move to capitalise was Umberto. Eventually his opponent managed to regroup, take the centre, win a pawn and passed pawn at that and then trade down to a pawns + Knight v Knight  ending. Despite heroically battling on and allowing his flag to fall (which his opponent never noticed), Umberto would have been unable to prevent the extra pawn from queening and so resigned with honour.

A fantastic team performance which potentially could have been the upset of the season.

2.  A Fleming              1-0    Bob Lanzer

4.  Jim Wheeler         1/2    N Warrey

5.  Derek Harvey       1/2     Paul Richardson

Win by Hastings 3-2

Derek had a solid draw. I got advantage out of the opening from a delayed exchange variation of the French. Mel drew the short straw playing their best player on b3 Ian Comley who duly won. James was obliged to accept a draw. Our hero Andrew was 2 pawns up one on each flank with a rook each so his opponent was obliged to resign at the time control.
