We had another of our epic Irish vs French Club battle last Sunday, this time against Paris-Aligre.
8 boards, 2 commentators, a lot of fun, some surprises and a final score of 5-3 for Paris-Aligre after a tense ending where all the eyes were on the decisive last game! All the ingredients were here for an exciting Sunday afternoon…
Michele and Roy had some hard luck in their games and gave a head start to Paris 2-0 but soon Peter brought the score back to 2-1 with a clean win. Later Gavin managed the incredible and beat Farid, solid French 5d in an even game to bring the score to 2-2! Tom lost his game by the narrow margin of 1.5pt but Matei lead Ireland back into the gamscore e with a win of his own so there was a nice 3-3 tie.
Unfortunately David and later Christian were too strong in the end and Paris got the final victory.
