On December 6, 2016, I played in a 13-round blitz tournament organized by the Battersea Chess Club in London, England. The time control was 3 minutes with a 2 second increment.
GM Simon Williams and I were tied with 12/13 points at the end of the event, and this is the first of three playoff games between us to determine the overall tournament winner.
White: GM Simon Williams (2485)
Black: IM John Bartholomew (2448)
