Ted's Not So Excellent Adventure

In my first game of the club championship I managed to win an interesting game against Ted Mann. Ted missed a tactical trick that wrecked his position, but he did try to get his king into the action.... starting on e8 it went, e8 - g8 - f7 - e6 - d7 - c6 - d7 - e6 - f6 - g5 - h5 - h6 - h7 - h6 - h5. All with heavy pieces on the board!
My own was luckier in its choice of companions, hesitantly starting e1 - c1 - b1....then, bestriding the board like a colossus, c2 - d3 - e4 - f5 - e6 - d7 (forward, always forward).


Fun fact: There were no draws last night at the club championship, and if memory serves me there were no draws in the five rounds last year. That's six rounds, roughly 54 games and no draws!! Only fighting chess at K-town, bring your A-game.
