    Abul and Michael – well done! My win was just a good result, but your were great achievements! Michael, that was long expected win:) and really good one.
    When I left the club John was close to a draw, I don’t know what happened…

    Sadly, I messed it up. I won a pawn, then he sacced a second for compensation that was livelier than I expected. I gave back a pawn, and then walked straight onto a landmine. It was Q+B+2 pawns versus Q+KN+1 pawn, but he was far more active and, crucially, his king was safe.

    Michael’s win was a master class on the white side of the Benko Gambit. He destroyed Reynolds on the queenside and when his opponent opened up on the kingside, he trounced him there as well. Let’s just say I won’t be playing this defence against our captain if I meet him in the club championships!!
