Atticus 1 travelled to Aigburth for the last match of the season, which was (almost) a relegation decider. For Aigburth 2 to stay up, they needed at least a draw and to hope that their FIrst team beat Waterloo (the matches were played side-by-side.) In the event Waterloo beat Aigburth 1 anyway - so congratulations to them for staying up. Meanwhile we got the better of Aigburrth 2, despite missing three of our regulars. The match was effectively decided on Boards 5-8 where we split the points despite some rating disadvantage. Dominic had a convincing win in a French Tarrasch, coming up with an imaginative pawn sacrifice and gradually strangling his opponent (not literally.) I got a highly favourable French structure by transposition on Board 1 against Graham and was able to crash through on the K-side. Tom Webb played a great game with some adroit use of in-between moves finishing off his opponent. Brian had an early grip against Dave Pearcey's Bird, winning a piece and keeping central domination. Keeping things solid. Derek had a very creditable draw against Nick which got down to a complicated-looking Q+B ending. Sanjoy had the better of his draw, and was perhaps unlucky not to get the full point. Nick Martin was up against his old foe, Ian, and neither side made too much progress. Jim seemed to be holding into the ending but dropped a piece and then went down to a mating attack. Commiserations to Aigburth 2, then, but they will be favourites to bounce back up next year.

In remembrance of Bob Platt
With great sadness we have to report that Bob Platt has died in Southport hospital after a short illness.
Bob was a longstanding member of Formy Chess Club playing for the first team over many years and also was Treasurer for some time. Prior to Formby he had been a member of Waterloo and the Royal.
His connection with MCA chess went back well over 50 years.
The funeral will take place at Thornton Crematorium on Wednesday 19th April at 3:20pm. There will be a wake afterwards to be held in Formby possibly at the Cross House on Cross Green but this is yet to be confirmed.
(President of the MCA)
