Herts Chess Online, Round 3 Results

'Hertford 2' beat 'MCS Oxford B' 2½ - 1½
'Hertford 3' lose 1½ - 2½ to 'Ashby Ivanhoe'
'Hertford 4' lose ½ - 3½ against 'Streatham B'

26/01/21 4NCL Online - Hertford 1 got off to a good start against an admittedly greatly outgraded Atticus B. 2½ - 1½
Hertford 2 disappointed against St Benildus D with a draw when the grading suggested a win would be the outcome.
Hertford 3 lost to Cornish Pirates. 1½ - 2½
Hertford 4 were smashed ½ - 3½ by Celtic Tiger Cubs. But again they were 200+ outgraded on average.

21/01/21 Thursday evening and 19 players turned up on Zoom for a 90 minute analysis from Stephen Swanson of a 1st Division League club game played by Paul Byway. This was a real treat with everyone enjoying it, even the viewer with no sound. We're hoping Stephen will repeat this initiative soon.

12/01/21 EACU Online Club Championships U1400 Hertford beat Broadland Harriers 2½ - 1½.

08/01/21 EACU Online Club Championships All three Hertford teams won their round 2 matches this week. There's an odd number of teams which usually means one team has to take a bye each week. To avoid this and give everyone a game, 3 teams each week are split into half, to give 6 mini teams and 3 mini matches. Confusing but it works.
