The newly minted East Budleigh club hosted our Peter Rooke Knockout match last Saturday.

Exeter 3½-4½ Newton Abbot Peter Rooke Cup Semi-Final 28th Jan 2017

The visitors took an early lead when, on bottom board, Brian's extra piece got sidetracked and the opposition's pawns rolled unstoppably forward. (0-1)

It looked like we would be two down when Will lost a pawn early on, but, with his opponent focussing on the Queen's-side, he picked up a piece and put together some decisive threats on the other wing. (1-1)

Always-enterprising Chris Lowe did his best to upset Trefor's solid build-up, but after some tense manoeuvres, was happy to agree a draw when White refused to be distracted. (1½-1½)
