Dear All

Our two closest rivals were Chichester A, whom we beat 4.5-1.5 in round 7, and Portsmouth A, whom we lead 4.5-0.5 in round 8.

I was under pressure for most of my game, but missed a win in the quickplay finish. I'm not sure whether the clock saved me half a point, or cost me a half. Perhaps the draw was fair!

Phil's unfinished game on board 2 takes some absorbing. All the pieces seem to be in white's half of the board. If it was a six nations match, the possession and territory stats would be favouring black (Phil). It somehow looks a bit like a rugby scrum too, with the Rs and Qs acting as the heavies. Surely all this outweighs white's extra pawn?

However with a clean sweep of the bottom 4 boards, it's already job done.

Keith's been white against Ian Matthew in both games. A bit harsh on Ian, that, as he's hardly gotten a look into either. Contrasting QGEs on 4 and 5 - Mike handling the black side well, Paul (same structure, different opening) not bothering with a minority attack when there was a mate to be had. And an elegant debut win for Clive on 6 completes the picture.

With Kier and Srini too, we really are quite an impressive team all of a sudden. There's still a theoretical chance of not winning the league (unless Chichester fluffed their lines against Cosham last night), but....

....round 9 is away to Gosport on 19 April and we finish with what by then should (just) be a showcase match against reigning Champions Fareham on 7 May.
