    Have a look at this picture:

    The team on the left were the winners of the entire tournament, Manchester Grammar School, who won 21 out of 24 games. (6 rounds, 4 games per round). However in the first round their board 4, graded 180 (~2050 FIDE), lost to a 109 grade (~1500 FIDE). Board 4 is nearest to the photographer in the above picture. See if you can work out what moves have been played up to this point.

    White has played three moves. Black has played six! Perhaps white has moved his knight back and forth a couple of times?

    The sites look is seriously compromised by the watermark/advertisement banner across almost every single photograph. Apart from that it was pretty good.

    This is how the game started:

    which makes for a funny story for White to tell his friends if he subsequently went on to win. Unfortunately for him, he lost, but perhaps it will teach him the valuable lesson that you should treat all your opponents with respect.
