On 12th February 2005 Devon 1st. team met Hampshire at Ilchester and came out easy winners by 13 points to 3.

Following are some of the games played.

Since this page was first posted, we have added the game Ashraf - Brusey.

Unfortunately we have not been able to publish the games of Devon's newest recruit - Petr Zajicek - but we do have a game played by him in 2000 in which he beat an international master.  This game has been attached and is a good example of his rather unique style.
