Nigel vs Dane at the pub

Dane and I caught up around noon today for a game at the Grovetown Hotel. The plan was for a non-cup game that I'd still publish on chess.ky. Random colour start; I ended up with the white pieces.

Pretty hard to beat sitting in the sun on a mild winter's day with a nice pint of Renaissance IPA and a very enjoyable game of chess...
