Round 5

I just had a quick win against Peter Cafolla (rated 1976). It went down the a6 line of the Grand Prix, he lost a pawn and then another plus I had the dominating bishop pair!###pgn###[Event “Ennis Open”] [Site “?”] [Date “2011.05.??”] [Round “5”] [White “Maroroa, S.”] [Black “Cafolla, P.”] [Result “1-0”] [ECO “B23”] [WhiteElo “1999”] [BlackElo “1986”] [PlyCount “43”] [SourceDate “2011.05.22”] 1. e4 c5 2.

Gawain is just in his game at this currently moment and it is a dragon where he has just sacked a rook – He’s got great feel for these kind of positions but he did say he’s normally playing on the black side of the Dragon!

The next round starts at 2.30pm and I’m sure I’ll get a tough pairing, maybe GM Aaron Summerscale if results go one way!
