Dyfed Closed Round 2

Round 2 saw the first draws of the tournament. Tony's game against Scott Hammett was a close-fought encounter; Tony was an exchange up but ultimately unable to break through. John and I were both lucky to survive. Ian missed a mating attack against John and agreed a draw in a position where he was still winning, while I was two pawns down against Julie but got one of them back, with opposite-coloured bishops discouraging her from playing on. The decisive games once again followed the ratings, though Jamie Sen held his own against Tony Haigh for quite a while, and Rudy's exchange advantage didn't seem to guarantee a win until Paul Orton slipped up.

Colin Denham - Gerry Heap 0-1

Rudy van Kemenade - Paul Orton 1-0

Matthew Francis - Julie van Kemenade ½-½

Tony Haigh - Jamie Sen 1-0

Roland Spencer - Margaret Baron 1-0

Scott Hammett - Tony Geraghty ½-½

Jan Sendall - Georgina Gray 1-0

John Basterfield - Ian Finlay ½-½
