As I wandered around occasionally the other games were hard to judge: the typical complicated, level material, positions that we all get into. How we managed to lose them all is a mystery. All I can say is well done to the O.U. players.
In my game a dodgy “theoretical novelty” at move 5 led to a decent position where I eventually won a pawn. Disaster struck as I was coasting to victory, with more spectators than time.
