Swedish league match - a tough Sunday
Hello Dear Reader!
Today I had the privilege to travel to a lovely Swedish town called Helsingborg and help my chess club from Malmo to fight with Helsingborg's team. This was the second round in Swedish league this season, but first game for me as I couldn't play the match before, which Malmo won 5-3.
Together with Thomas we decided that I should play with Black pieces on second board, so that he can have White on first, so he would be fighting for a win and I would try to make at least a draw. According to ratings our team was a big underdog, and sadly it also showed in the total result.
During the week I had some time to prepare for my game, so I was ready to put up a good fight!
High in spirits I started my day off with a champion's breakfast -
I live in Copenhagen (Denmark) and the match was in Helsingborg (Sweden). Even after living quite a few years here in Denmark and travelling to Sweden frequently, I'm always fascinated by the bridge that they have built to cross the sea between Sweden and Denmark (you can see a little piece of it in the picture below).
