Now the Christmas holidays here, I sat down to fix the game replayer problem that has prevented me from updating the blog for the last few weeks. I had thought up an elaborate work-around, and was just in the process of trying it out when I blundered on the real solution. The replayable games were not displaying properly because there was not enough room for them on the blog page. When I clicked on a blog entry, the games displayed properly because there was now only one entry on the screen. So I've set the blog to display three entries at a time instead of seven, and that seems to have solved it. Now to catch up with all the game reports I've missed. I'm going to do this a day at a time, like the twelve days of Christmas, only not so many.To save time,and because the matches were some time ago, I'll just give the match result in tabular form rather than a verbal report.
Aberystwyth B 3-1 Steynton B, Emlyn Cafe, Tanygroes
Robert Wright 0-1 John Miller
Adam Robinson 1-0 Scott Hammett
James Corrigan 1-0 Gwyn Evans
Conor McEwan 1-0 Ray Greenwood

In Rudy's absence, the A team played a match against Gwyddbwyll.com at the St David's Club on Tuesday 26th May. Julie van Kemenade obtained a crushing kingside position against Iwan Griffiths with her King's Indian, while his queenside advance came to nothing, leaving him with a hopeless defensive task. Adam Robinson had a slight advantage in a Caro-Kann with a long way to go when Owen Llywelyn got a knight trapped and resigned. On fourth board, Tony Geraghty won a piece early on against Emyr Llywelyn, and clinched the game with a deadly pin. My game on Board 3 came to an early and unfortunate end when Tegwyn Jones was taken ill with a stomach bug. Happlily, he felt well enough to drive himself home after a while, and the game was abandoned. League Controller Iolo Jones, in Greece with the Welsh Seniors team, ruled that the game should be awarded to Aberystwyth, but neither player's grading should be affected by the result. Aberystwyth therefore won the match 4-0.
Iwan Griffiths - Julie van Kemenade 0-1
