Board 3, Loughborough 1 v Wigston 3, 14/01/15

Jan 16, 2015, 9:53 AM |

All moves in 75 minutes, with 10 second increment from move 1.

The first of two games in two days, against the highest rated players I have played since I re-started playing last year.

12. d4 was a positional error, and I felt I had to give up the pawn in order to survive.  The pawn-up end-game might have been tricky for my opponent had I not stupidly blundered a second pawn!
