Blast from the Past: Wilkinson – Mansson, BPCF Open Championship Semi-Final Round

My win against G.Wilkinson as Black was a pretty mediocre game. As in the Musgrave game, White played a dubious gambit. Following a series of innaccuracies by both players, the game resolved to an endgame with an extra pawn for … Continue reading

Blast from the Past: Musgrave – Mansson, BPCF Open Championship Semi-Final Round

There is a small mystery regarding my win against R.Musgrave. The game ends after my opponent’s 19th move. The position is roughly level, so it is unlikely that White resigned because of the position on the board, especially as there … Continue reading

Blast from the Past: Kennerley – Mansson, BPCF Open Championship Semi-Final Round

Blast from the Past: Mansson – Cross, BPCF Open Championship Semi-Final Round

I remember being very disppointed with the outcome of my game against G.Cross, and looking back at it now, I think this feeling was justified. Up to my 40th move I had played well in slowly building up my kingside … Continue reading

Blast from the Past: Mansson – Butterworth, BPCF Open Championship Semi-Final Round

My game against A.Butterworth was another disappointing loss. While my memory of the game was negative, having looked back at it, things are not quite so clear cut. While my choice of system against the Modern Benoni was far from … Continue reading

Blast from the Past: Mansson – Green, BPCF Open Championship Semi-Final Round

The next game I am going to look at is my other King’s Indian from the section, played against G.Green. I was White again and the game followed the same line as my game against M.Ali up to Black’s 12th … Continue reading

Blast from the Past: Mansson – Ali, BPCF Open Championship Semi-Final Round

It was interesting to go back and have a serious look at my game against M.Ali from my first BPCF Open Semi-Final. My memory of it was rather negative, but actually looking at it again, things do not seem quite … Continue reading

Blast from the Past: First BPCF Open Semi-Final Round Section

As a result of my success in my first Preliminary Round section in the BPCF Open, I qualified for a Semi-Final section, which eventually started in the following year. Here I faced much tougher opposition and my result indicated that … Continue reading

Blast from the Past: Scruton – Mansson, BPCF Open Championship Preliminary Round

The last game from my first BPFC Open Preliminary Round section that I’d like to look at is my Black win against R.Scruton. This was a rather gritty struggle in which neither side’s play was especially distinguished; I eventually prevailed … Continue reading
