Essex League 2023-24

While the Essex League takes its next steps towards return of the full pre-covid competition, we move to five Essex League teams, somewhat offsetting the withdrawal of the London League Minor team. The extra team, EL4, is a Juniors team reflecting the tremendous success of the Club’s Junior section. We shall follow their progress with interest. For long-standing members with good memories, we once before had a Juniors team, back in the 1980s when the late Roy Wagstaff (club co-founder) ran the Junior section and the Junior team was skippered by Bill Franklin.

Champions 9-6 The Rest – As Essex League Champions, the Club entertained a team from The Rest of the League to a challenge match at Wanstead on Tue 12 September 2023. The Champions beat The Rest by 9-6 in a fine season opener. The details of this match have been entered in the EL1 tab in the fixtures layout below.

Report by Mark Murrell

Superb match play last night eeking out a narrow home win to exert some early pressure on our closest rivals. A split hair between the teams on average rating (in old fashioned grade terms the team average would have been identical) with nothing really in it on each board too. Eight draws would not have been surprising! A rare appearance by Francis Chin too but not entirely unexpected as a London match.

The difference being that our top order converted the advantage of the white pieces. Classy wins from John C and Partha. We had John H down for a black pieces win but Russell found one of his trademark sacs to spook the draw. Pleasing too to see the board where we were under pressure from relatively early on maintaning the fight to the end of the session to keep the pressure on the opposition.

Commentary by Mark Murrell

Loughton were missing their top four players last night and five from their first choice eight; so on paper it looked like an easy ride with that degree of decimination and so too from the first Division 1 whitewash of the season.

The top five boards however were hard fought and the excellent 8-0 home win conceals how close some of those games were; three went to the end of the session.

    7-1  

Star game of the match and opening score on the stroke of 9 pm, was Artur’s demolition of Radu Bara’s Larsen’s opening with a beautifully played and very impressive attack. Find the game below.

This was followed after another hour by John Hodgson’s win. John had annexed the exchange on move 17, the culmination of a sortie by two knights. However, Robbie had strong compensation for a good while with his minor pieces until John managed to activate both his rooks, which was not until move 32. From that point, John was clearly winning. Partha’s game against Ian Reynolds featured a crowded board, with the only exchange for a long time being a pair of pawns. Partha had slightly more space than Ian, but all the players could do was manoeuvre in what seemed a static position for quite a while. Then it finished in a flash when Partha found a killer blow with Nd5!, a square solidly patrolled by a black pawn. The knight move forked Q and R (on c7 and e7 respectively) but capture of Partha’s knight would unleash an even more dangerous pawn. It took Ian less time to resign than it takes to read this description.

So the home team were 3-0 up, but the remaining games were all well-entrenched, with the bottom three boards all favouring Wanstead while David had got into a bad ending and Oliver, in his last game for us before moving back north on a new job, playing Tamas in a position which featured a fair degree of imbalance, but in which chances were approximately equal.

The bottom two finished next, Ashley having had the advantage of a mobile pawn centre after queens came off and an extra pawn, but Paul Savin had for a while a vice-like grip with his bishop pair making it difficult for Ashley to complete his development. Once Ashley had advanced his d-pawn to d5 and cut off Paul’s long-range bishop (firing along the diagonal from a8!) there seemed only one winner, but care was still required before the apple fell. Our David proved difficult to beat. While David K was on the verge of picking off our David’s Q-side pawns, David S put his faith in a K-side counter which at one point looked a long way off, but in the end was suffient to share the point which was also enough to win the match. Steve having netted the exchange from an intense Q-side action now finally stilled Arunas’ resistence.

Just two games to go. Paul Bancroft, playing the Black side to Peter Laundy’s London system, had his K-side pawns creeping up the board like a black tide, trying to make it look like a tsunami. But Peter, with patient manoeuvring seemed on the point of turning the tide as Paul’s advance was on the verge of being over-stretched. It was on a knife-edge for a moment, but it was Peter’s game that snapped and Paul had his win.

Just Ollie to go. Both players were in blitz mode in the finishing time scramble. Bishop and pawn ending. Tamas forced the win of Ollie’s bishop with a queening pawn, but Olie had four pawns still, but evenly split two pawns on each side of the board: just Ollie’s K+4P against Tamas’ K+B. Tamas managed to pick off two of Ollie’s pawns, leaving Ollie’s a and b-pawns to fight for the last half point. It was a close thing, but Ollie couldn’t quite force the win.

7-1 is impressive, but doesn’t tell the struggle; five of the games finished in the last half hour.
