He does indeed, did I make a mistake? 😀

Saitek Master Chess vs. Novag Diamond II: 1/2

In the beginning the Novag had advantages, then fell asleep and surprisingly the Master Chess was on a win. But perpetual chess, caused by 2 pawns of the Master Chess, gave the Novag the gift of a draw:

Hi all,

Yes, thanks very much for a great day, it won’t be the last time I use the Diablo, I just need to find out how to use all of it’s features. It was also nice to see an exciting variation of openings.

Here’s the 5 interesting openings it played today:

1. White: Vienna Game: Vienna Gambit, Kaufmann Variation
2. Black: Dutch Defense: Nimzo-Dutch Variation, Alekhine Variation
3. White: King's Gambit Accepted, Bishop's Gambit, Bogoljubov Defense
4. Black: Catalan Opening
5. White: Semi-Slav Defense: Meran Variation, Blumenfeld Variation

Lastly, a big Thank-You to Nick for the organisation ...


Cheers,

Al (a knackered old Man)
