First league win of the season!

Oct 14, 2009, 5:31 PM |

I was playing on the bottom board of the Bristol university A team for our second league match (I lost my first game, but never mind about that), and I thought I would share my rather nice win as white. My opponent thought he could grab a pawn quite early on, but unwittingly left himself open to a strong attack. See for yourself if you think black can hold the position.

So, black fell for a little trap which left him in a difficult situation, and then it wasn't too difficult to apply lots of pressure, followed by a pleasant finish! 
All in all, exciting games were had on all boards, (6 in total) with lots of decisive games, but in the end, our team lost 3.5 to 2.5. dissapointing, but hey, it was good fun all the same. And on a side note, the university also has a B team that played on the same night. They also lost. Go Bristol!
Hope you enjoyed the game, and leave comments if you wish. Cheers.
