Congratulations White Rose

Congratulations to the White Rose Team which has won promotion to Division 1 for next years 4 Nations Chess League (in the UK). The Yorkshire based team (hence the name) is managed by my PNG Olympiad team mate Rupert Jones. They lead division 2 from Day 1, and despite a hiccup on the final weekend against Pride & Prejudice, won the division by 2 clear points (Match points were the scoring system).
Here is a game from one of the lower boards which saw a very early Bc4 against the Sicilian, and ended with a very early mate.
