4 NCL 2002/2003

Jack Rudd - now  resident in North Devon - had a very successful season playing for Bristol 2 in Division 3 of the National chess League.

He played eight games, winning four, drawing four and losing none!

Unfortunately, Bristol 2 were not quite so successful, finishing in the middle of the table after winning four matches, drawing one and losing three.

Jack is a familiar  (and winning) figure at many local tournaments as well as being the organiser of Yoevil Congress.  Yoevil is a new venue on the circuit and this year will be the third event.  Please lend your support by entering - you will not be disappointed.

Following are the eight games that Jack played in the National League.  Look for the cracking finish to the last game.
