Tony Forrester wins at American Nationals

England international Tony Forrester has won the prestigous Open Board-a-Match Teams at the American Nationals in Phoenix.

Partnering American Jim Mahaffey, and in a team with Jean Quantin and Marc Bompis of France, and Josef Piekarek and Alexander Smirnov of Germany, Tony's team came from behind to win by the very slim margin of less than one board.

The EBU is holding a Board-a-Match (often called Point-a-Board in the UK) teams event in January. If you would like to try this less commonly played, though no less popular version of the game then join us at the National Teams Congress.
