We played our first game of the 2019-2020 season last night, against the Sheffield Nomads (who finished in a very respectable second place last season). As you can see from the above match card, we tied, two wins each.

I lost my game with Jo Woollard on board 2. I enjoyed the game very much; the result, not so much; but the game itself was great. After I made my massive blunder, around move 23 (Na3, should have played Nc3), and Jo’s Queen swept in to snaffle b2; *gulp* I was left calculating for what felt like an eternity. No good moves at that point (computer says around -5) and I was fighting to stay alive and living in hope. All in vain.

Anyhow, here’s the PGN:

Congratuations Jo, well fought!

Arrived home, licked my wounds, and indulged in a little post-match choco-fest.

23. Nc3! You’re practically winning aren’t you? What a shame! Bad luck!

Jamie

Hi Peter. Yeah, I think it was close still, had I played 23 … Nc3. I spent a while looking at the move, but was considering white’s likely response would be 24. Qxb2, which I couldn’t see any good response to, for black.
