Our game this week was played over the board, not in a big international event, but in the 1st round of the 2021/2 Swale Chess Championship.
Both players are well known to me – with the White pieces is youngster Eli Gallamoy and with Black the current Swale Chess Champion David Page.
This was Eli’s first competitive game using a clock and, it is fair to say, that Time Management is the only weak link in his chess armoury
White: Gallamoy, Eli Black: Page, David
