Durham City v Tans

Revenge for Durham. Last season we beat them 4-1, a resounding victory against the reigning 2013-14 champions. This year we were outgraded by a total of 202 points and lost 4½-½.

I was the most outgraded (51 points), and probably the most outplayed as well, castling queen side in an English. I’m not convinced that castling queen side was wrong, but my opponent was,  played well and took full advantage. Once again pride of place goes to Alex who claimed the only half point with a draw against an opponent graded 40 points more than him. Well played Alex
