Grateful thanks to Alan Dommett who analysed several dozen games to come up with 1 from each of 4 sections. Matches below are in this order:

Nick Stout 0 Richard Ursell 1 (Major)

Mike Waddington 1 Steve Peirson 0 (Open Championship)

Frank Hamilton-Taylor 1 Jim Fox (Minor)

Richard Smith 0 Graham Hillman 1 (Intermediate)

Alan starts off with Nick Stout playing Richard Ursell in a French, Exchange Variation in the Major Championship. The win advanced Richard to a tight play-off final with Peter Wilcock, which he won. Unfortunately for Nick though, the defeat put him out of the running for the Major Championship

In the next game Mike Waddington, eventual 2018 Dorset Closed champion takes on Steve Peirson in a Van Geet Opening. Alan points out the first half dozen moves exactly follow a game Mike played in the 2011 Dorset Open

In the following game Frank Hamilton-Taylor manages to get edge home against Jim Fox and he went on to become Dorset Minor Champion

The final game is from the Intermediate. In a Caro-Kann, Graham Hillman beat Richard Smith one of the favourites for the Intermediate. Graham has a fine congress scoring 2.5/3 and went on to become Intermediate Champion.
