Edinburgh West v Tiger Cubs

May 8, 2013, 3:34 PM |

My first game in the Edinburgh Summer Cup, against young Detar Sums (I am not sure I read the handwriting right) of Edinburgh Chess Club's Tiger Cubs.

Edinburgh West won five of the six games. Because the Summer Cup is played with a handicap system, this meant that the Cubs won the match!

I went on to have a friendly game with a 1900-ish player which I wish we'd written down - I managed to get an exchange up, then let the endgame fall apart. Something similar has happened in several games I've played against much-higher-rated opponents recently, so my homework is to study endgames.
