Chris plays Board 3 (and loses quite rapidly)

Not a good start as I arrived late for the game, to find that I had been 'promoted' by Captain Joe to Board 3. (Not sure that I am ready to leave the security of board 4 yet).

I was pleased with myself up to move 7, but missed a couple of opportunities and made life hard for myself from 14 on by moving my queen into a spot where she could do me no good. I also neglected to anticipate the threat of the two rooks lining up. So lessons learned here. Jon Cox went through it afterwards and pointed out some ways to improve but happy to receive advice from others also.
