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.
