Lavery wins Belfast South best game prize

White to move and win

The prize for the best game from the pre-Christmas portion of this season's Belfast South Chess Club Open was awarded to Robert Lavery for his Round 6 performance against Bobby Thompson. Lavery built up a strong centre in the opening and found an exchange sacrifice to exploit his opponent's inadequate attempts to neuter it.
