Bristol 4NCL Report
weekend 22-23 Jan
by Jack Rudd

Round 5

Bristol 1 v Numerica 3Cs 1

1. Charles Cobb - Nigel Davies GM
2. Rasmus Skytte IM - Stephen Gordon FM
3. Simon Buckley 1-0 Adam Ashton
4. Chris Beaumont IM 0-1 John Bentley
5. Jack Rudd 1-0 Dale James
6. David Buckley 1-0 Alan Walton
7. James Sherwin IM 0-1 Jon Thompson
8. Ann-Marie Ashby 1-0 Katie Martin

Bristol 1 5, Numerica 1 3

Our loss to Guildford 2 in the previous weekend had meant we started this weekend bottom of the table (although only one point off fifth). It was therefore important that we registered a result against our fellow relegation strugglers in this round. To help in this endeavour, we enlisted Danish IM Rasmus Skytte to play on board two.

The match started off well for us; I registered a quick win against former Northwest Eagles player Dale James. Charlie then got off the mark for this season with a draw against Nigel Davies.

At around that point, I went downstairs to help with the arbiting duties. I had had us marked down as winning on 3 and 6, losing on 4 and 7, better on 2 and unclear on 8. When I came back, the dust had settled somewhat. Chris hadn't been able to hold his exchange-down position, but Simon and David had both steered their way through potential complications to win their games. Unfortunately, Stephen Gordon had managed to hold his pawn-down position against Rasmus, so when Jim, who had been in trouble since the opening, lost, it meant we were, as ever, relying on Ann-Marie.

She didn't let us down. Her opponent's good play earlier on had netted the exchange, but left her very short of time, and in the time-scramble, Ann-Marie picked up enough pawns to tilt the balance her way. She proceeded to exploit her advantage in the ending to make the final score 5-3 to Bristol.

Bristol 2 v Barbican 2

1. Paul Helbig 0-1 Richard Palliser IM
2. Stephen Dilleigh 0-1 Neil Berry
3. David Collier 0-1 Stephen Dishman
4. John Curtis - Martin Taylor
5. Alex Easton - Michael Twyble
6. David Bareham 0-1 Craig Pritchett
7. Peter Chaplin - Andrew Mack
8. Torill Hagesaether 0-1 Khanwal Bhatia

Bristol 2 1, Barbican 2 6

When you're bottom of the division with no points from four matches, facing the league leaders is not the most fun of experiences, and this match was no exception. Alex's game was drawn fairly quickly; the rest of the games were all settled around the time control, and in that depressing manner that has been an unfortunate feature of Bristol 2's matches this season. The most notable game was Paul Helbig's, in which three queens featured; he reckons he had a win somewhere, but couldn't find it over the board.

Round 5

Bristol 1 v Wood Green 2

1. Rasmus Skytte IM - Paul Littlewood IM
2. Charles Cobb 1-0 Jonathan Levitt GM
3. Simon Buckley - Peter Sowray FM
4. Chris Beaumont IM 0-1 Richard Pert IM
5. James Sherwin IM 0-1 Bernd Rechel IM
6. Jack Rudd 0-1 Harriet Hunt IM/WGM
7. David Buckley 1-0 Bjorn Tiller IM
8. Ann-Marie Ashby 0-1 Neil McDonald GM

Bristol 1 3, Wood Green 2 5

This was always going to be the tougher of the weekend's two matches, and any points here were in the nature of a bonus. It became obvious they wouldn't be much of a bonus when I blundered my queen in a difficult position.

Things did not improve much. Simon and Rasmus both had edges but couldn't make them count, and Ann-Marie's material disadvantage proved critical. This meant that we were relying on a win from Jimmy; his 3 pieces-for-a-queen position could have gone either way, but as luck would have it, it was his opponent who benefited. The good wins from Charlie and David, keeping their IM norm chances on track, were in the nature of a consolation, as Chris was already losing by that stage.

Northwest Eagles 2 v Bristol 2

1. Brett Lund 1-0 Paul Helbig
2. David Hulmes - Stephen Dilleigh
3. David Spence 0-1 David Collier
4. Glenn Charleshouse - John Curtis
5. Richard Savory - Alex Easton
6. James Hanley - David Bareham
7. Mark Ruston 1-0 Peter Chaplin
8. Dominic Rabitte 0-1 Torill Hagesaether

Northwest Eagles 2 4, Bristol 2 4

Is there some rule that says "you may, one weekend per season, field a team of eight players of the same sex in divisions two or three. You must do so when playing against Bristol 2"? The Eagles are the second team to do this against us.

This is one of those frustrating matches that could have been so much more. I didn't see Alex's game; it was the first to finish as before, and Peter was always in trouble, but the other games when those had finished looked promising. Dave Collier, in particular, had a very interesting kingside attack v queenside attack game, which he won quite neatly.

The real deciding factor was the games on 1 and 4; John had what looked like a winning attack, but his opponent found a very neat little defence. And Paul's game was always double-edged, as ever, but the time scramble resolved itself in his opponent's favour.

So the second team are off the mark. If we beat King's Head and Mindsports, and somehow collect some more points, we might just stay up. But it's now a long shot...
