Round 2 of Coventry Chess Summer cup was played on the 7th and there were some excellent games.
Daniel Rowlands managed to take Dave Ireland down to a pawn ending. When most players would have settled for a draw, as expected Dave managed to find the win, a lesson in how to win pawn endings.
Rajan Parekh, fresh from his draw against a grade 175 at the 4 NCL, managed a closely fought draw with Wesley Beeston.
The Summer Cup yet again threw up a surprise result with Ravi Sian winning against Dave Filer.
Congratulations must go to Sean Doherty on winning his match. Sean has only just started playing OTB chess, so a very good result for him.
