LightSpartans 3-1 FlamingPhoenixFightersB
23235 marjohn vs cofail 1-0
23236 Azubuike vs Troisvierges 0-1
23237 cjldx vs ascoliloko 1-0
23238 Mayors vs LordTyraad 1-0

We won the very first round convincingly !!

On board 1 a peaceful English exploded and after an inaccuracy on move 16 white got an easy game with plus material.

On board 2 Troisvierges emerged from the opening with a nice position. Soon he was positionally better and finished the game with a mating attack.

On board 3 cjldx played a very attacking game from start to finish. The game ended in only 16 moves !!

On board 4 LordTyraad after a peaceful opening got a balanced position but his backward c7 pawn proved to be the Achilles’ heel. Soon he lost critical material and the position collapsed.

A nice way to start the TL season after a long absence of our team in the TL series.
