    A swindle from the Dunbartonshire League. I was black, dropped a piece in the opening, should have resigned, but played on mainly to avoid the effect of an early loss on the rest of the team (a 4-board match). We won 3.5 - 0.5

    Great game - These London system players - they just don't know
    what to do with a won position.

    You were getting hammered a box would most likely register
    +5 against you at one stage.

    Was the lad in time trouble towards the end - why did he sac his
    Bishop? did he think he was going to lose it?

    Why did you not PM it to me?

    If I use it in Scottish Chess (and this would have got in )
    I pay £15 for games like this played in Scotland.

    Too late now - I've done my June piece. - and after June the mag
    will be full of games from the Scottish Open (11 GM's in so far)

    but PM me the names and teams anyway and I'll get it in before the
    stop press but it won't be the main game.

    Good to see you have your Queen & Rook mating patterns up to scratch.

    Well, it was pointed out after the game that the bishop sac in the opening could have been purely to lure the rook to c2, otherwise the mating pattern doesn't work.

    But I'd not claim that.....

    Wow, nice win. It's too bad that game ended up not mattering as your team won 3.5 - 0.5.

    Hi

    Thanks for game and match detaisl.

    Quite a line up. GM Jacob Aagaard on Board 1.
    I bet he enjoyed seeing that game.

    Boards 1 & 2 in league & cup matches in Scotland are now pretty tough.
    It's not uncommon to bump into a GM or IM.

    It's great having guys like in that your team, it's make the after
    match analysis so much more entertaining and instructive.

    Thanks Again.

    jacob can be quite succint in his comments.

    I lost a horrible game, and he simply described it as 'roadkill'.

    But he'll always discuss and advise if asked, without being condescending. And good to have in the team.

    Too late for Scottish Chess.

    Never mind - Stuck it on latest Corner along with another horror.
