Match Report: Bournemouth A vs Southbourne B

Bournemouth A vs Southbourne B 

Tuesday 8th March 2022

Division 2 Result: 3:1

A good nights chess, played in a friendly atmosphere, where Bournemouth just edged a close contest, which was much tighter than the final result.

Board 1 being the key game, in which both players had winning chances. Antal's all out kingside attack running into Dennis - only move - offer of a "pseudo Queen sacrifice" which exploited White's back rank issues and defenceless King.

Acceptance of this leading to checkmate, or bolstering it's defences to exchanges, resulting in a winning endgame for Black, due to his extra pawns. Another nail-biter between these players!
