My Chess Play Improves!

I played in the Hastings Christmas and New Year Morning Tournaments this year (rather than playing in all four as I did last year), but I only managed to score 1.5 in each, i.e. one win and one draw. The gradings which came out yesterday at least show that I have made a recovery, from 79 to 98. Now I need to keep up a good standard and hopefully pass the 100 mark rather than falling back again. My win in the NY AM tournament against Mason Woodhams, another member of the Hastings club, was probably my best game so far. He went on to win a section in the Weekend Tournament, which I hadn't entered. I've recorded this game on a page of my website where it can be played through on-screen:
