Gordon Lyall v Geoffrey Gunawan (3-11-20)

Round 2 of the 2020 Club Champs.  Geoffrey employs 1…c6 to White’s Réti (1. Nf6), and follows it with accurate play to hold Gordon to a draw. The game was pretty much even from start to finish. But a commendable effort given Geoffrey, still technically a junior, was rated some 350 points below 2019 Club Champion Gordon.

Guy Burns v David Scott (3-11-20)

A marathon 92 move game played in Round 2 game of the 2020 Club Championships. Two constants with Guy v David – 1.  being evenly matched players, the games always tend to be close battles – and 2. it will be a Slav. In this match, a largely even endgame is reached after move 26, before the two engage in some tense rook and endgame practice for a further 65 moves!
