Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

The sec­ond round of the Four Na­tions Chess League took place at Northamp­ton, Read­ing and Bolton. This col­umn re­views the play of the York­shire teams in Di­vi­sions 1 and 2.

White Rose 1 were pit­ted against Guild­ford 1 and per­formed ad­mirably, only los­ing 5-3 with high­lights in­clud­ing Paul Townsend’s de­mo­li­tion of GM Mark Heb­den and Sveltana Su­cikova’s win over IM So­phie Mil­liet. On Sun­day, they had a more re­al­is­tic chance over Anglian Avengers 1. Wins for GM Colin McNab, IM James Adair, Iain Gourlay and a sec­ond win for Su­cikova con­trib­uted to a 5.5-2.5 win for the York­shire side. They cur­rently lie in sec­ond place in Divi­sion 1 Pool B.

In Divi­sion 2 White Rose 2 lost heav­ily to Spirit of At­ti­cus A and Alba while Brad­ford DCA Knights A also lost both matches. Both York­shire sides will have to start win­ning some games if they want to avoid rel­e­ga­tion.
