Me Jim Crawford grade1086 vs Peter Bennett ungraded

As I entered the main hall at George Heriots School (http://www.george-heriots.com/) which is in centre of Edinburgh it is situated in lovely grounds Just a stone through from Edinburgh's most famous street (princes street) with a stunning view of Edinburgh Castle well normally but tonight it was very foggy, as I walked into the hall all you could see was an ocean of chess boards a few people had arrived like myself early making sure I got a parking space then after a few announcements...Start whites clock was all I could hear and I was wondering around taking pictures so got sat down My opponent ready and waiting, shaking hands we get started ...e4 the game comences
