Another 229 games involving Irish players or teams have been added to the archive this month.
Of these, one featured in the Steatham & Brixton Chess Blog’s “Worst Move on the Board” series, unfortunately on the wrong side for the Irish player: Gavin Wall had an unfortunate experience in the 4NCL Team Rapid. (Diagram omitted!)
Elsewhere Brian MacRéamoinn continued his return to the game at the e2e4 High Wycombe Open. With Brian, even the draws are interesting, as his third-round game shows; though some of the interest came at the expense of accuracy, e.g., 23. … Qa3+ would have won.
