Buccaneers vs Bandits
Wed 31st August 2022
Great match between the Buccaneers and Bandits! On board 1 Femi slightly overextended in the opening and had to rescue his knight for the cost of a pawn and pieces exchanged off the board. He advanced his king forward aggressively in the endgame but unfortunately walked into a mating net. James was up a pawn from the opening from what I saw and then later I looked and he was up a bishop in the endgame and converted for the win. Stefan won the exchange and a couple of pawns early on in the middle game and then made sure not to blunder a back rank mate, good job. This became up a full piece and he converted confidently. Finally Peter won a piece and then converted this into a victory. Well done to everyone who played. 4 wins and yet the match was a draw 2-2.
