After our match at Ashton last Wednesday our club resumes on Monday evening at 6.30pm.
We received a very harsh lesson. We were completely out-graded on each board so it was always going to be tough.
As far as I aware from 11 boards over 2 games we only managed a win from Kyle Dissanayake, Dylan Crothers, Sithun De Silva and a draw from Lawrence Moustafa. Well done guys.
The lesson learnt is crystal clear, you play too fast you will make mistakes and more likely than not lose. I have a challenge on my hands to make our kids slow right down. This is what I will be working on at my club and after school clubs over the next few weeks.
Ironically I lost both of my games on time as 25 mins is not enough for me these days! My 2nd game in particular was probably one of the most complicated games I have ever played and 2 hours wouldn't have been enough to work out what was going on.
Thanks for playing everyone.
