    Thanks. I've been starting to factor positional advantage into my play more, and thought that breaking open the defences was worth the slight material loss.

    Alas, no luck in the second game. It was mine to lose and I think I tried to be too tricky about half way through, when I should have played safer and doubled down on my advantages.

    Lost my second game, but it was an epic battle and left us 1 each. Reviewing the analysis showed I had some chances that were way above my pay-grade :-D

    Might be hoping for a stalemate trap? Not much chance of that...

    Looks like Santoz has their game in the bag, and Jaymin should be able to close their two at this stage, after the vacation (*sigh*) but I don't think I'll get my second game, not even to a draw... It's going to be down to Kennedy Parker getting at least one draw by the looks of it! What an...

    Solid games for me so far. Have crawled my King out of a sticky situation in one and just had my opponent spring a trap for their Queen in the other - going to be interesting to see how both play out.
