Club Championship 15/5/23


Keith Emery 1689 1-0 Ray Flood 1475

Perceptions are a funny thing. Though I felt comfortable for most of the game, even after allowing Keith a protected passed pawn, a few moves later I felt I was practically lost, and played the rest of the game in a slightly despondent fashion. In fact, Stockfish insists I was at least equal even then. When I fell into the silly snap mate I felt, “oh well, it was lost anyway”. Don’t make assumptions, play the position. But well played Keith anyway!
