Board 3, Wigston 4 v Heathcote 2, 05/12/13

Dec 7, 2013, 9:37 AM |
35 moves in 1h10m, then 20m for rest of game, no increments.  

A novel way to lose this time: a near perfect opening, well ahead on the clock as my opponent struggled to make anything of the game - then I miscalculate a trivial combination and lose a piece.  No real excuse for that at all!  

On a brighter note, I met a player from the opposition who I had last seen, as a team-mate of mine, back in 1979; so that was fun at least.
