Four Nations Chess League Rounds 5 & 6

(Click here for league tables at foot of page)

 

The third weekend of the Four Nations Chess League (4NCL) took place over the weekend of 10th & 11th February 2018, with divisions 1 & 2 playing in Northampton, and division 3N again in Bolton.

 

The Yorkshire-based teams participating are White Rose 1, White Rose 2, Jorvik, and Bradford DCA Knights A, B and C.  Results in these teams’ matches are given below.  (Left-hand team had White on odd numbered boards.)   There are also Leeds University Old Boys in Division 3A, and the Slovakia-based Castleford Roses whose captain lives in Castleford.

 

Barnsley’s Gary Hinchcliffe, who originally played for Shropshire 2 as an emergency substitute, is now a regular player for his new-found county.  Meanwhile former Sheffield University player now-60-year-old Charlie Higgie (Charles Lowick Higgie), whom older Sheffield players will remember, but who has been resident for most of his life in Malpas, Cheshire (where he was a parish councillor for about 23 years), also appeared playing for Shropshire 1.

 

In round 5, White Rose 1 nearly whitewashed Spirit of Atticus A, but White Rose 2 were on the receiving end of a similar fate against Manx Liberty.  Jonathan Arnott (MEP for the North East England with his base in Hartlepool, who quit UKIP three weeks ago), scored a win, albeit his team’s only win, while Jim Burnett secured the only draw.

 

In round 6 White Rose 2’s last game to finish was Jim Burnett’s against Samuel Milson.  This was Jim’s personal “all-time record” as regards the duration of his game which lasted 7 hours (without a break), and 120 moves.  Jim eventually won a Q+P ending, thereby drawing the match.  By that time everybody else had gone home!

 

A “no show” by Enniscorthy (from County Wexford in the Irish Republic) necessitated 3 teams in division 3N (Holmes Chapel, Ashfield-Breadsall 1, and M/c Manticores 3) playing Jamboree pairings, with, in effect, half of team A playing half of team B, the other half of team B playing half of team C, and the other half of team C playing the other half of team A.  This led to the amusing consequence that in round 5 these teams scored two half-match results, such as half a won match and half a drawn match.  Round 6 saw the second half of the Jamboree pairings being played, so completing three matches between three teams in two rounds.  Neat, but it led to ½’s in the match-point column of the result table in Division 3N after round 5!

 

Results in round 5 and 6 were as below.
