Hebden Bridge derby matches in League 1 this season was postponed from last week until Monday evening. Last season Golden Lion had been beaten at home by the same opponents. It was the only match they lost as they clinched their fourth successive title. Hebden Bridge finished four points behind them in second place. It would be reasonable to assume then that these two sides should be in the mix for the title race again this season.
This time around the situation was somewhat different. However, the Todmorden-based team still sported a very strong line up with the spine of their quadruple title winning side all present.
They were joined be Andrew Swales and Pete Dickinson. Swales is new to the team this season, but Dickinson played some games on board 5 last year and performed well. If the over the board encounters were as finely matched as it looked in the grading of the players then it was going to be a tight match. And so it proved to be. All the games continued well into the second half of the evening and the results on all four boards were by no means pre-ordained. In the end they won both. After this the game drew to a swift conclusion.
A highly complicated Chigorin System of the Ruy Lopez appeared on the board. This led first of all to White winning a pawn and then, a little later, Andy was compelled to give up the exchange to prevent his queen from getting trapped.
After that Sam was always in control even thought the complications persisted for a while longer. Finally, Sam forced simplifications and Andy resigned when he made a blunder in what was already a lost position. Unlike Andy and Pete though he did have some counter play and a very resilient looking defensive position.
This all meant that the result on board 1 was absolutely critical to the outcome of the match result. This way of approaching the London has a decent reputation and indeed Andrew appeared to be holding his own only for Matthew to slowly out play him and exchange one type of advantage for another until he finally sealed it in a rook and pawn ending.
By this time Pete had lost and Dave was only writhing in agony before Martyn dealt his death-blow but the result was no longer in doubt. Clarkson 0 — 1 M. Swales 0 — 1 S. Dickinson 0 — 1 N. Suttie W 2 — 3. All the games from the match can be found in the game viewer below. A most unlikely state of affairs. This week also saw a second round of fixtures played in League 2. Chris Edwards and Paul Jacobs also won their games while boards 1 and 2 were drawn.
A rare and outstanding achievement. Your editor is fresh back from a short holiday and, as you might expect, there is plenty to catch up on. Before all of that though it would be most remiss not to reflect on the chess event that has been dominating coverage on all the big chess news sites for the last two weeks. Yes, I mean the chess Olympiad. Can you see how the legendary attacker Tiger Hillarp Persson concluded the game with White here.
Sadly, this time around, we both concluded some months ago that neither of us had the time or the energy to run it again. We hope it will make a return for the edition. In some ways, not having the FCO to worry about over the last two weeks has left me with more time to enjoy the event itself.
It has been extremely well covered in all the usual places and, for a change, England have actually performed creditably well. After 9 of the 10 rounds England had managed to manouevre themselves into a three way share of third place and were genuine medal contenders having lost only one match to Azerbaijan at that stage. The firs move is fairly obvious but can you see the whole idea?
Unfortunately, they were then drawn against the Russians in round 10 and, despite the fact that the Russian line up looked marginally less frightening than it might have done no Grischuk or Svidler , they still managed to beat our heroes fairly convincingly with Vladimir Kramnik on board 3!!!
However, after this set back, England picked themselves up and managed to crush Kazakhstan to finish the event in fifth place. This is the best result for England at an Olympiad for over 20 years so congratulations to them.
These are both featured on the right. See if you can find the winning continuations in both situations. The solutions are given along with the games in full in the game viewer at the bottom of this post. This brought the total number of teams up to six and meant that one team would not need to take a bye in each round of fixtures.
Huddersfield brought along a team with some new faces in it alongside some seasoned veterans. It looked like the visitors would be favorites on paper and so it proved over the board as they inflicted a whitewash on the home side. Here is the full match scorecard:.
Kerrane 0 — 1 J. Sandhu 0 — 1 C. Edmondson 0 — 1 P. Czerwinski W 0 — 5. Steve Harrington managed an excellent consolation point against Paul Whitehouse on board 3 and the bottom board was drawn. One would expect these three teams to be duking it out right through the season.
This week the second round of League 1 fixtures took place. Nick has sent us his game which you will also find in the viewer at the end of this post. On boards 2 and 4 Huddersfield managed to hold draws against higher rated opponents. The match was pretty tight by all accounts. John Kerrane summarises proceedings for us below:. The two teams looked evenly matched on paper, and so it turned out on the night.
The other three games were drawn, leaving the final score level. Bamford 1 — 0 L. Sullivan 0 — 1 D. It looks like this season could become very interesting indeed. As is always the case where any club has two or more teams in a division they are drawn to play each other in the first fixture of the year to ensure there can be no hint of collusion later in the season.
This season Hebden Bridge, Huddersfield and Belgrave all have two teams. At the core of the Golden Lion team is the same spine that has helped them to those last four league titles, Martyn Hamer, Andrew Clarkson and Phil Cook. Halifax have had a turbulent few seasons themselves. They used to have a trio of super strong players on the top three boards themselves but Winston Williams and Darwin Ursal were both missing last season and the team felt their loss keenly.
Unfortunately, this caused some distraction to other players on both sides and Andrew Swales lost his game shortly afterwards. They could very well have pulled it off. Martyn managed to beat Winston, Andrew had Bill on the rack for significant chunks of the evening only for his adversary to defend himself stoutly and resourcefully to hold the balance and a draw.
This just left Phil cook and Richard Porter to decide the match. If Phil could win the match would be tied. Nay other result and Halifax would steal the win. Phil was a piece and a pawn up when he made time control and all looked well but it seems he may have drifted back into time trouble for he made a most uncharacteristic blunder on move 41 and this basically cost him the game on the spot as Richard spotted a nice tactic.
See if you can find it in the position on the right. The games from the top three boards can be found in the game viewer at the end of this post. Here is the final match score card:. Swales 0 — 1 C. So, an early season set back for the reigning champions that will give the other teams in the League this year hope of stealing their crown.
There is a long, long way to go though. Later in the game he gave Pete a glimmer of hope before finding the right way to close out the game with some good technical play.
The match was level. See if you can spot it in the diagram on the right. Then Sam saw off Terry in the endgame before Neil did much the same against Luca although he had held a material advantage for a significant chunk of the evening. All five games from this match are in the viewer at the end of this post. Here are the final results:. Parsons 1 — 0 A. Shapland 1 — 0 N. Leonard 0 — 1 J. Suttie 1 — 0 L. Again, on paper this looked like it should have been straight forward for the home team, but, playing Black and with a rating advantage on every board but board 5, they struggled greatly.
Gordon Farrar continued his strong recent form by holding Ian Hunter to a draw on board 1. We will try and bring you that result then. Today readers, we offer you the chess version of an amuse bouche as we prepare for the start of the new season tomorrow night.

Small gnome like creatures called Boggarts have been living on the moors around here since before time began. For centuries, they managed to exist peaceably alongside humans, keeping themselves well — hidden in ditches and hedgerows and appearing only to unsuspecting travellers with the promise of a trick if no treat was forthcoming.
But gradually humans over farmed the moors, burnt them, built on them and polluted them with their factories and so the Boggarts got angry and became more goblinesque. They set about stealing down into town and causing a right rumpus. And so they still do, especially at this time of year.
