Another tight match between the Teams. Again it went down to the last game (on Board 2), where Bournemouth's, Thorsten Meyer just edged it against Jamie Doyle.

This was a very close, tense yet exciting match and after two hours play and three draws (two games were a bit cagey with blocked positions and the top board game was an interesting Q v R +2P ending) it went down to the thrilling final complicated game on board two. Unsurprisingly, it attracted a large audience, mainly from the rest of the players in both teams. Well played to Thorsten Meyer (Bournemouth A) who held his nerve and found a nice queen sacrifice to win the game
