Happy Birthday Dad!

It’s my Dad’s birthday today so I thought I’d show you one of his games. He also came back on the latest ECF Grading List a couple of days ago with a 240 grade, and would have been number 5 in the England over 50s (behind Short, Nunn, Speelman and Hebden) if he hadn’t switched his representation to Wales.

Dad’s opponent in this game was Luke McShane, who is one of the favourites to win the British Championships which are currently taking place in Llandudno.
