I played an extremely boring last-round game at Torquay, choosing the English Defence, which is usually good for a scrap at my level.

The Queen check is supposed to weaken the black King's-side, but it also has some benefits for Black; f5 is strengthened and the g7 square can be a bolt-hole for the black Queen.
