Re: Open section games to be broadcast live 12/7/2014

Do Yorkshire outgrade Middlesex? The early accident on board 8 has left the Yorks player a pawn down. Anyone have any idea what the assessement is on board 2? Rook and two pawns for knight and bishop. Chris I think this will help you in finding out whose stronger: http://www.oxfordfusion.com/oca/Vi...

I make it 47 Council members in the room plus four guests.
