Broadstairs’ recent victory at Bridge resembled a lap of honour as the team secured the Walker Shield with a 100% record. It is fitting, therefore, that we should feature one of their wins as the latest Game of the Week. Michael Doyle’s typically swashbuckling performance was not without the odd alarm and readers playing through the game may wish to pause after 15. Bc6 to consider how Black could extricate himself from what looks like a perilous position.   While it is fair to say that White’s 17th and 18th moves were not his best options, it was nevertheless a fine win for Black.

White: Ray Rennells (82)        Black: Michael Doyle (80)
