Nice work, Boris. Thanks for the game.

Thanks Howard. Not a defeat for the Tromp; I think you certainly had the better of the opening and middlegame (while it lasted). If I may say so, you possibly pushed a little too hard for the win when it was probably only a draw.

Oh indeed, I pushed too hard. I'll enjoy putting into the box and seeking my mistakes.

And as you say NEVER a loss for the Tromp. It did its work sterlingly - its just that Duggan came along and wrecked it!
