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

A few firsts for the first game of the Fourth Boris Chessky Cup Head-To-Head:

  • first time playing at the Watery Mouth Cafe; 
  • first time playing with chess clock time restraints (60 minutes each, no increment - neither of us got into time trouble, but it was an interesting factor to the game); 
  • first time playing with the touch-move rule (didn't end up a problem, but, again, was interesting having that potential rule hanging over us, compared to our usual social approach to the games).

First to 5 points: 
  • Dane: 0.5
  • Nigel: 0.5
