My 1st otb WIN in 11 Months!! 2014/15 Season

Jan 13, 2015, 3:34 PM |

FINALLY managed to convert an advantage into a win after 11 months without a full point otb! I ended the 2013/14 season badly and then when this season started it took ages to shake off the rust but finally back with a win lol Cool My opponent says "ungraded" on the database but I know we were outgraded on all the other boards. It just so happens today is the 13th of the month and 13 is one of my lucky numbers and after recent good online form and practice I was confident of a good result! Here's the game - I was white on board 3 for Didcot 2 away vs. Wantage 1



I think he could have drew and made a fortress but we were both playing for the win so a draw was never going to happen here. When I left the match I was the only person out of 5 boards to have won for our club too hopefully our board 4 won too and then we would have drew the match 3-3 (2 draws, 2 wins and 2 losses each).

Bring on my next game! Also the 38th Kidlington Chess Tournament is in 3+half weeks and I'll be playing in the u145's (u1810) intermediate section again so I hope I can keep on good form and do well in that this year. Smile
