For the third time out of only four matches we found ourselves once again the away team. After the disappointing loss to New York, the team rallied back in scoring a massive victory over the resourceful team from Ohio. While the score line was heavily in our favor, picking up 10.5 points, the match was a lot closer than it might have seemed.
After the first round, newcomer FM Dov Gorman was the only full point for us followed alongside by a half point from NM David Grasso. Ohio struck first up 2.5-1.5 after one round and forcing a 3-1 response from us in the second round and an accompanying 3-1 third round. In the final round, with the just a draw necessary, Passers went on to seal the deal with a 2.5-1.5 score.
Game of the Week
While Dov was Player of the Week, this game from Ethan was a masterclass against Ohio’s strong board number one NM Justin Storm. Ethan found a way to open up his pieces, get his knight involved, and then found the powerful 28. … Rc1!! to seal the deal.
