Our first Game of the Week for the new season features a fine win by Nick McBride who wins the John Couzens Vase for the first time with this exquisite finish. It is rare for David Faldon to be reduced to such helplessness as Nick’s marauding pieces bore down on his king. Bad luck, David, but congratulations to Nick: a game worthy of the final.
White: David Faldon (174) Black: Nick McBride (173)
