John Whibley v Geoffrey Gunawan (29-3-22)

The annual Rose and John Kingston Memorial tournament kicked off for 2022 on the 29 March. The level of the players in the tournament this year suggested there would be few easy games and a promise of some good battles. This is the first game from Round 1. A very even game until Black decides to opposite castle queenside leading to a classic kingside versus queenside attacks, where first White is winning – but able to find the finish, with Black storming back with a pawn storm and Knight sacrifice to open Whites kingside and allow his major pieces in for the kill.
