West of England Congress – Day 2

Saturday dawned with sunny skies and the air like a sparkling white wine - another way of saying freezing cold. This weekend has every prospect of being the coldest Easter Congress ever; beautiful to behold from behind glass, but with a constant biting wind sweeping in from the Russian steppes. Difficult to think the clocks go forward tonight and from then on we’re working to British Summer Time. 

Round 3:

In the Open, Megan Owens withdrew overnight, feeling unwell. Mackle sacrificed a pawn in return for activity in a Catalan-ish opening, but at the end of the day was simply a pawn down inthe endgame. Stephens continued his recovery after a bad start to the tournament with a winning attack against Alan Brusey, but his clubmate Meyrick Shaw lost ground, after being the exchange down in the endgame. 

In the Major, Gosling and Slade made up ground on the leaders, while all the others, bar one, could only draw.
