Our TVL B team had another tough match at home to Surbiton B at the Roebuck.
This was a hard fought encounter, with the teams attempting to emulate Carlsen and Caruana by drawing all their games. Surbiton veteran Stef Bruzzi (who represented Italy in the Clare Benedict Cup way back in 1960) hadn’t read the script, though, and his win saw Surbiton B record a narrow victory.
Congratulations to everyone on a close encounter, and especially to Raghu and Max for sharing the point with strong opponents.
