Queen Mary's 3.5 King Edwards Five Ways 2.5

The first team end their season with a win in a dramatic match against Five Ways. Initially things didn't look to be going our way with two early losses. However, Liam Conner managed to win his game and record his first win for the first team this season, closely followed by Sarvesh Rajdev marking his debut in the first team with a draw. With the scores finally balanced at 1.5 to Queen Mary's and 2.5 to Five Ways, the last 2 games were very tightly contested and nerve racking for both players and spectators. Ben Nevett Farman finally managed to break the dead lock in his game and record a win to level the scores. Fahim Nasiri's game couldn't have been closer! After around one and a half hours of play the game was still very finely balanced. Fahim, with just the slightest of a material advantages (one pawn). Eventually, Fahim managed to take advantage of this and complete the come back for the team. Well done to everyone involved.

Especially well done to Fahim Nasiri for winning all of his games this season whilst playing on board one against the best players in the Birmingham Junior Chess league. There isn't a trophy for the leagues best player, but if there was he would have won it this year.

Also, very well done to Ben Nevett Farman, who has won all of his games in the first team this season.
