Atticus had a tough opening match in the fourth season of the 4NCL Online which began on Monday. Steve Kee had a tremendous battle with IM Wadsworth and was winning for most of the time before - presumably in time-pressure - he repeated moves in a winning position. I had a good opening against GM Hebden but got ground down in a position where I just needed to 'do nothing' (and do it well). Steve Burge had some attack whilst a pawn down in a Fantasy Caro-Kann but missed some equalising shots in the middlegame. James Rothwell also had chances and was better in a double-rook endgame before time-pressure got the better of him. So - a creditable start to the new season despite the lop-sided look of the score!
