For those of you who can’t get enough top quality Broadstairs chess, here is one more from our world famous victory over Margate on Monday. Paul Carfrae was another who was outgraded by his opponent and this is a very different game from the last. Here Paul is under the cosh for most of the game, forced to ditch his normal swashbuckling style by an unorthodox White opening that ultimately backfires.

White:   John Thorley (145)     Black: Paul Carfrae  (133)
