Board 3, Wigston 4 v Braunstone 3, 21/01/16

Jan 22, 2016, 1:15 AM |

All moves in 75m, with 10s increment from the start.

... and another interesting game lost in time trouble in the ending ...

I delayed playing f6 too long (always tricky to get that decision right in the French advanced variation) and I gave away the pawn prior to getting into serious time trouble, thinking - wrongly - that my potential attack was good compensation.  Time trouble merely turned a pawn-down end game into a lost one.  By the end I had a minute left, my opponent five.

I'm enjoying the actual games this season more than many last - but not winning any.  Not sure what that says of my psyche at present!
