Our team captain continues our clean sweep
Chris Bryant completed the final game of our match against Croatia with an easy 16.5 point win on Saturday. He got all four corners and failed to follow the proverb "If you win all 4 corners resign" and lived easily in the centre. The game was uneventful without too much fighting.
On the Tuesday Des Cann lost his game on board 1 and said: "I lost my first game this year. I blame it on being a bit stressed at work recently :-)
The game was mostly OK for me but my opponent played fast keeping me under pressure. I made two blunders and a miss mouse click :-("
Toby Manning said of his game: "Well, I won...
not sure I should have...
I was doing OK – attacking his groups, keeping them weak – but then screwed up the O-yose (I think he should have killed a group of mine, but failed)
it was then very close, but he needed an extra move inside his territory which he failed to make, which allowed me to get a ko to kill his group but he misplayed the ko in time trouble and resigned"
Now on to the crunch game with the other unbeaten team - Bulgaria.
