All square

The draw in last week’s London Online League match against the then Division Leaders, Streatham & Brixton 2, was enough to knock them off top spot, as Hendon Spitfires were the only team in striking distance to win and took over top spot. East Ham Beagles, Wanstead Wolves’ next opponents, were 4th at the start of play. The match finished all square with draws from the top two and one win a piece in the other games. The team page […]

Wolves draw with league leaders

Wanstead Wolves managed to add half a point to their meagre total in Round 6 of the London Online League, Bishops Division, finishing 2-2 against Streatham & Brixton B. This is a creditable performance given that Streatham & Brixton B are the Division leaders. Wins on the top two boards from the two Ians put the Wolves ahead, countering the loss on bottom board. This left Keith Jones defending a NvB ending in which he was facing two passed pawns […]

4NCL Online Round 4

A somewhat disjointed round this, with half the games in the first team match being decided by default, RA1 winning 2½-½ (a defaulted game results in a ½ point penalty, in this case, one default on each side), and a further defaulted game occurring in the second team match, which was instrumental in turning a 2-2 draw into a 2-1½ win after the half point penalty is applied. The other two matches resulted in 3-1 defeats for Redbidge All Sorts. […]

The second season of the London League online, however, neatly fills a gap between the current LoM and the 4NCL Online – each of which finishes their second season very shortly – and the next […]
