First of all, I would like to commend everyone for establishing their first contact on the game forum within one hour of 19:00. This is an excellent performance which I would like to see repeated every round. We gained one win due to a forfeit because an opponent failed to contact RoyRogersC before the contact deadline.
Our U1600 match concluded in a tie, thanks to a good performance by our top two boards. It must be remembered that as our team line-up stands, the lower boards have the toughest job.
Our U1400 team had a very tough round, finishing with only one game point. Best wishes for next round. "Crush your enemies!" :)
Remember to take your time. 45 45 is a long game, and it's better to spend 5 minutes on making the right move than to make your moves quickly and lose with more time on your clock than you started with. Before making each move, ask yourself what move your opponent will respond with. Always suppose your opponent will make the best move.
Happy chess! Rejoice evermore!
