A fairly unremarkable match this, characterised by rubbish play on both sides. I’m only including it here for the sake of completeness – every chess match for which I have coherent notation is going online in my video channel, Chess In The Cave. A curious feature of chess is that otherwise intelligent people cannot write down their moves properly, even though the process only demands the noting of a letter and a coordinate. My chess improved when I focused on the notation. That meant that afterwards I could analyse the game properly because I had a proper note of it.
