Flood Cup 2002

 

Results:

Brian Willcock ˝ Paul Evans ˝

Harvey Quaresmini 1 Doug Foster 0

Peter Hiller 0 Gabriel Boross 1

Andrew Robinson 1 James Hiller 0

 

The Hillers put up strong performances tonight, and while both lost they can gain some joy from their play. Gabby managed to obtain a pawn advantage early on and was able to shield this through to the endgame where it proved decisive. James managed to last 23 moves before going a piece down, and had Andrew tied down at one stage in the game.

 

In other games Harvey gained a piece adavntage and quickly overcame Doug, while Paul & Brian ended up with a draw from a seesawing game that could have gone either way.

Transfer

Not much transfer tonight! Andrew and PH teamed up against Harvey & JH and won all of the games until Harvey called it a day (he seemed to have the flu – something to do with climbing a windmill at midnight in Kingaroy!).

The sisters left. Brian left after giving a dissertation on the various editorial control of the Spectator since the Suez crisis. Paul & Andrew, who remained, played lightning until close at 1.30am.
