As expected, I lost my game to Dennis Hale, who basically held the advantage all the way to the near endgame where it's just losing and to play on would have been meaningless.
Despite putting numerous problems to Dennis, he was in no danger of ever losing. I made an error near time-control and got into a losing position on the 34th move and resigned one move later.
A great performance by Dennis.
I've also put my name in for the Grade matches that I mentioned in my earlier posts. So hopefully, I can garner more games under my belt.
It's near midnight now and I am exhausted and at the same time relieved, because I can now start to prepare for my exams next week.
