A good close match.

  1. Dave had a tough game against a strong opponent who was very highly graded several years ago and has recently restarted playing. He lost to a king side attack.
  2. Graham had a very interesting game where he sacrified a bishop but his opponent defended well to hold the draw.
  3. Martin was slightly worse in a heavy piece ending but his opponent offered a draw which was accepted.
  4. Simon won a piece in the early middle game and was always winning.
  5. Ken was a pawn down in a rook and opposite coloured bishops ending but held the draw.

So a drawn match and a fair result.
