Books Over the board

First game on the board I made

I caught up with Dane to christen my new board yesterday at the Grovetown Hotel.

Lovely spot. Not sure why I've never been in there before - I pass it almost every time I go in to Blenheim.

I didn't start off that great, and my blunder on move 8 prevented my white-square Bishop from having an escape route if the pawn on f4 advanced, which Dane didn't miss...

I tried not to make the win easy for him, but he won nonetheless.

It appears I might be better at making chessboards than playing chess.
