Dane vs Nigel, Game 1 of the Fifth Boris Chessky Cup Head-To-Head

The first time we've had a game with a time-out. I spent way too long trying to make sure I didn't make a mistake with the Queens/Rooks lining up the centre and left myself with no time to complete the game properly.

First to 5 points: 
  • Dane: 1
  • Nigel: 0
