114 b Whyte, Brian G 2048 0 - 1 Talsma, Paul 2177 e
         
2 - 2

Paul "Panzer" Talsma crushed his opponent in a 22 move miniature, in which his opponent did not look remotely battle-ready.  Andreas found his queen snared in a crafty trap.  Martin was "Arkell-ized" into submission in a 67 move marathon of almost unrelenting tedium.  (Perhaps Keith finds such games interesting.)  Andy snatched a last minute equalizer in a dramatic tussle with former British Champion, Paul Littlewood: our game of the week.

We remain joint leaders of Div 1 / Group B (with Arkell’s Angels & Surbiton 1).
