Colchester players have been competing in a few tournaments recently. Eldar Lachinov came 2nd in the FIDE-rated Hendon Blitz competition (results not on the website yet) and also got a good result at the Norfolk Rapidplay. Martin Harris scored 50% in the FIDE-rated Major section e2e4 High Wycombe and followed this up with a 3/5 score in the Intermediate section of the St. Albans Congress.
With the (relatively) local Southend Congress taking place Easter weekend there will be more Colchester players in action soon.
Here is a miniature from the 4th round of the St. Albans Congress. Martin makes a mistake that loses material on move 13 but then gives a good demonstration of how, even when you have a lost position, making all your pieces have activity can cause significant problems for your opponent.
