Paul Barclay, the one Wanstead winner from this match, writes:

“My opponent played the Sicilian: this left me with an isolated queen pawn which I was able to sacrifice as this forced off the queens and left me with a good position.

We both had a pair of rooks and QR pawns: he had 4 consecutive pawns (KR, KN, KB and K pawns) and I had 3 consecutive pawns (KR, KN and KB pawns) but I had an active rook, and by checking on QN8 forced his king to KR2.

I centralised my king and forced him into a zugzwang: rooks were exchanged. I could easily have grabbed his QR pawn so he was forced to push on the kingside. Now I had the advantage. We both queened but I had two extra pawns by now and easily forced off the queens: he resigned. Both our scoresheets were incomplete, so there is no copy of the game.

I think we should thank them for the food and pleasant venue”.

In the first round of the Intermediate Plate, the club lost to Hackney.
