This is quickly becoming quite the grind and always feeling like your second favourite in a match is never great! Once again we were out graded on all but board 5. I must admit i wasnt the happiest person at finding we were playing up a flight of stairs and then lead to a small dim lit room, but I did manage to get my opponent to play on a different table  allowing others some movement. I was playing Richard Bryant which generally means it could be quite an exciting game. Before any fireworks. Steve on board 4 had already lost , a quick glimpse at the other boards didn't provide much promise. Gary playing Bill Evans (a good player of yesteryear) was definetly worse, Adrain on 1 was too complicated for me to quite figure out. Glyn on 3 was looking on the ropes too. I'd already offered a draw and been rejected now Richard had set the scenario of swapping a rook for a bishop and 2 pawns . With the boards in that state any hope had to come from me winning so I had to accept the offer and hope I could convert a pawn. No sooner had I gambled Glyn got up from his seat chuckling Ive just gambled, my immediate response was oh no ive done the same thing! Glyns game had now gone crazy and I think maybe he missed a win but wouldnt bet on it as I had a stonking headache and it was as much as I could do o try and figure my own problems. Gary was still losing but was playing for a rather obvious advantage , not long after he had pulled it out of the bag , I heard his opponent say Im sure I should have won that, he was right, but it was a much needed equalizer for us 1-1 after all the craziness on board 3 it suddenly fizzled out into nothing and a draw agreed. 1.5-1.5 still time for myself to make a game losing blunder. As Richard was checking on the other board I was left staring at my mistake just waiting for him to play the right move and me resign. He came back had a good think and then played the wrong move ,I must admit I was really relieved not to have lost in such a stupid way. and the advantage was mine once more. I got my pawns rolling and that was it Richard in a terrible posistion and now short of time resigned, another creditable point for the Lions garunteed. With just Adrian playing I glanced at the posistion and thought he was slightly better but with his record of blowing games ,I decided to go and wait downstairs and just wait for the thumbs up or down thankfully it was the former and Adrian had won us the match.
