The game I am sharing today was played in a clan challenge at Red Hot Pawn between Wycombe Wanderers and The White Hats on three boards. I played on board 1 for The White Hats. In addition to this loss, I was able to drew my other game against Smiffy. It was the only draw in the challenge and unfortunately also the only game we did not lose. This meant that the final result was 5 - 0 in favor of Wycombe Wanderers.
