It’s amazing how much not having cycled, not having had pie and chips and a pint or so in the pub at lunchtime and not being quite so injured, makes such a difference. I feel really up for it tonight. Which is what I tell my opponent as he lays dying on the floor five closely fought games later. He’s still managed to come out on top overall but boy does he know he’s been in a game tonight. There’s more than one way to destroy your opponent, it’s not essential to do it via the score.
