4NCL On Line League Season 3, Round 6

 

The sixth round of the current season of the on-line 4NCL (senior) league was played on Tuesday 06/04/2021.  Yorkshire-based teams won 9 matches, drew 1 and lost 6, which is 59%.  In Divisions 1 to 6, there remains one more Swiss round, to be followed by semi-finals and final among Group winners.  In Division 7, the seventh and final Swiss round is all that remains to be contested.

 

Two Sheffield players appeared in Chessable White Rose teams.  Oskar Hackner ground out a 129-move win in another materially unbalanced position in the 1st team, in Division 1, while Jonathan Arnott won more easily for the 3rd team in Division 5.  You can play through these games on screen by clicking on Oskar Hackner v Kyan Bui and David McNish v Jonathan Arnott which are on the YCA website, where details of the other 14 Yorkshire-based teams’ results can also be found.

 

Round 6 results of the 2 Sheffield teams were somewhat disappointing, being as follows, the left-hand team having White on odd-numbered boards:
