London League D3 East – 25 May 2022
Tom Barton, Captain
A disappointing loss of 7 – 1 in this match, the only win was by Rahul.
Neville arrived slightly late, got into difficulties and departed early. Dlawar had a challenge playing a FM on board one and he tried getting out of any standard lines but the decision not to castle proved to be a mistake. Last to finish were Jef and myself. I had equality for much of the game but my opponent had the bishop pair and I made a mistake allowing him to clear pawns and open the board up which made his bishops powerful.
We were out-graded overall, and heavily so on some boards so the result was not that surprising.
