Over on DailyGammon, Arthur Wright organises an annual series of international team challenges – 25-point matches between six teams of thirteen, starting in early January, with the final games wrapping up usually around Easter time. I was delighted to make the cut this year for the British Bulldogs and today’s position comes from my match with Perfect-Celle (Marcel) of the German Wunderbars, this year’s overall champions. A rather undeserved win for me, but sadly a 7-6 team loss.
Usually I simply run a match though eXtremeGammon and locate all my blunders as a way of finding positions for this column – but today it’s Marcel playing Blue in a position I would probably have missed over the board if the sides were swapped. Can you do better?
