Rapid Champs 2015 - Games and Reports

Ian Sellen has provided a game (hurray! others please take note). Ian comments that Anthony had just finished a long stressful game against Brian Nijman, which he won after a time scramble. This may explain his poor 11th move. Ian also comments that he doesn't have the same excuse for his 28th move.
