Exeter 3½-4½ Newton Abbot Peter Rooke Cup Semi-Final 28th Jan 2017

The visitors took an early lead when, on bottom board, Brian's extra
piece got sidetracked and the opposition's pawns rolled unstoppably
forward. (0-1)

It looked like we would be two down when Will lost a pawn early on,
but, with his opponent focussing on the Queen's-side, he picked up a piece
and put together some decisive threats on the other wing. (1-1)

Always-enterprising Chris Lowe did his best to upset Trefor's solid
build-up, but after some tense manoeuvres, was happy to agree a draw
when White refused to be distracted. (1½-1½)

About the Deeper Blue-Kasparov match (1997):
" I just think we should look at this as a chess match," he said, "between the world's greatest chess player and Garry Kasparov. "
