Chess match

Just arrived home (or rather, where I am currently staying) having played my weekly chess match for the Warwick C Team. I always enjoy these matches; a chance to battle with my mind over an even playing surface. I actually did quite a lot of studying over the Christmas holidays in an effort to fine tune my game.

Today's game started off fine. I decided, on this occasion, to employ the Paulsen Attack to the Najdorf Variation of the Sicilian opening. After about ten moves, I had my pieces actively placed and was creating some pressure on the dark squares. However, here my opponent found a neat little combination. Soon he had managed to queen a pawn (despite my best efforts to persuade him to promote the pawn to a knight instead), and I resigned thirty-two moves later.

My record currently stands at 9 losses and 1 draw, the draw being against a 93 year old blind man.
