4NCL Division 3 2013-14: e2e4.org.uk 2 – Oxford 2

Because of their lackluster start to the season, the e2e4.org.uk second team needed a couple of wins over the third 4NCL weekend. Their first match was against Oxford 2, which ended in a crushing 6-0 win over their lower – but not that lower – rated opponents.

My game against Sean Terry saw me play the opening in a rather unconvincing fashion, but after my opponent made the curious decision to capture with his bishop rather than pawn on move 12, I was able to turn the game round and outplay him in the middlegame.

I give the game below with some notes.
