4NCL On Line League Season 3, Round 5

 

The fifth round of the new season of the on-line 4NCL (senior) league was played on Tuesday 23/03/2021.  Yorkshire-based teams won 9 matches, drew 2 and lost 5, which is 63%.  Chessable White Rose 1 now has five wins from five matches.

 

Oskar Hackner was again playing for Chessable White Rose 1, and his game was another where he went for superior material imbalance rather than simple extra material (e. g. an extra pawn in an otherwise materially balanced position).  Thus he swapped into an ending with R+P+P to B+N (and other material as well), which is the sort of position many of us might be uncomfortable with, from either side of the board!

 

Round 5 results of the 2 Sheffield-based teams, and Chessable White Rose 1, were as follows:
