Away v Kettering

Nov 14, 2011, 4:45 PM |

I'd been drafted in to play on board 5 for Chessmates A tonight. My teammate wanted to swap and let me play on board 3 instead (we're the same rating)... Sorry David - I wasn't the captain!!

We won a tough match which was good and I managed to win my game after (as ever!) missing some clearer winning opportunities and after getting myself into a spot of time trouble!

It was an interesting game and Keith, my opponent, put up a sterling defense and took his King for a stroll from Kingside to Queenside. A real tussle and not an easy victory by any means!
