Russell played a Petroff against Andrew Stone's 1. e4, but slipped up right from the opening. He tried some tricks, but Andrew Stone took control of the situation for a quick finish.
I had a very interesting game against Brian Nijman - once again I built up a convincing advantage (a piece and then some!) and once again Brian managed to whip something out of nothing with only a few seconds left on his clock! Grr, well at least I didn't throw away the full point. Brian has kindly provided analysis in the game below.
Congratulations to junior Aidan Lim, who scored his first win at the club this week.
No Summer Cup on 28th March, because of Easter and the North Island Championship. Round 7 will be on 4th April, but there will be friendly games this week for those interested.
