Brewood lose playoff on tiebreaking elimination rule

Posted on May 11, 2016 at 7:15 PM

A very eventful evening at Bushbury happened, with Brewood A and Lichfield B drawing 3-3.  With Brewood A winning on boards 1 and 6, Lichfield B winning on boards 2 and 5 and draws on boards 3 and 4, it meant that the result after board count was 7-7. 

Eliminating the bottom board one by one, meant that the result of board 6 was taken off first which was a win for Brewood.  Therefore the score after the bottom board was eliminated was Brewood A 2-3 Lichfield B, meaning that Lichfield B gain promotion to Wolverhampton Chess League Division 1 for the 2016-2017 chess league season. 

Roger Grainger commented in the car on the way back home:  "You have got a bit to write up for the website David." 

Indeed I have.  A full match report will follow shortly.
