GLCC 2 v Ilford 1, London League D3 East, 22 March 2022
This was a very comfortable win of 6.5 – 1.5 and a winning first outing for Ilford by Rahul on board 3.
We out-graded our opponents so the result went with that. Neville had a very interesting double edged game that was agreed drawn in a complex position with both clocks very low. Game here.
I was always slightly on the back foot in a Dutch and my opponent gained a queenside passed pawn which proved decisive.
