This Sunday’s Branch Office Swiss was our best turnout yet, though we had a few chess players flake out at the last moment we still had 7 players show up to do battle – crosstable can be found here.
I have to hand it to my former AT Peter Paul who really had me on the ropes in this game. I decided to play for a cheap attack against his caro-kann and he swiftly punished me for disrespecting him. Lukcily, at a key moment he erred and I was able to escape with my dignity and rating intact.
This Sunday the Branch Office will be closed due to the holiday, however, we will be meeting up to do battle in Boris Izrayelit’s garden at 1pm! Seating is limited so if you’re interested in playing this Sunday please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org asap!
