Players who took part in the Thanet Congress were invited to send in games they thought were worthy of a wider audience and I am grateful to Stephen Appleby of Wimborne for doing just that. Stephen is a Thanet regular who finished joint second in last year’s Challengers tournament. He has submitted a game he played along with an apology to his opponent, Peter McGill, who has already featured in the earlier Challengers game that he lost to Edward Gray. However, it should be remembered that Peter won the Major section last year when he kindly sent in one of his best games. Peter, if you read this, I should be happy to publish your win from this year’s tournament.
White: Peter McGill (149) (155) Black: Stephen Appleby (161)
