Here is a smart win by David Wheatley against a higher graded opponent.  I’ll let David explain the background.

“The match at Ramsgate brought back memories of one of my best Millar Cup wins. At home to Ramsgate, I was (for some reason!) on board 3 against Steve Guy, then graded 144. The memory did not include his opening, the very same I played on Tuesday against Fred Hiron, ending in a draw. After winning against Mr Guy I do now remember thinking what a silly opening it was, and here we are four years later, and it is my stock opening…”
White: Steve Guy (144)        Black: David Wheatley (111)
