North v South night 2 (25-6-2019)
This game features two of the Club’s Junior members, Hamish Lester and Valera Bonyuskin matching up during the second night of the North v South match. Played under 25 + 5 time control, Hamish is white, and opens with the Ruy Lopez, all going well for the first 10 or so moves, until he overlooks his hanging knight. However, Valera then plays well to mobilise his forces activating his bishop and getting both rooks into play along open files and ranks, to eventually convert his minor piece advantage to a rook and outside passed pawn (soon to be queen) advantage. Game over.
