Nomads 2 faced a strong team from Stannington in the semi-finals of the Richardson Plate competition. The highlight was Mike’s win on top board against Carl Walker, while Steve and myself drew with higher graded opponents. In the last game to finish, Ken sacrificed the exchange to obtain a dangerous passed pawn but his opponent was able to cover the queening square and Ken eventually ran out of time. Overall, this was a good performance considering the difference in grades between the teams. Many thanks to everyone who played for Nomads 2 this season.
