Okay,New favourite game 🙂

I guess I spoke too early when I asked Ga to let me know his favourite game. He was pleased with his first round result but it doesn’t quite compare to this Round 6 win against GM Viktor Bologan. Utilizing his book (How to beat the Sicilian) Gawain deployed his pieces to create a bind before sacking a piece (Ga always chooses the most interesting variation) and keeping the pressure on!

Here is the game below

Tomorrow is the much needed rest day and although there seems to be many things to do(lake, spa, mountains,cycling) we will play it by ear (or is it air?) and probably see how our night pans out.

It is now Round 7 and Gawain is paired up against GM Anton Korobov from the Ukraine currently rated 2647 and is on the stage! You can follow his live game from this website.

Congratulations to our 4NCL team, Pride and Prejudice for winning their two games! Bring on the May Bank holiday weekend 🙂
