Walking back from Christmas shopping I came across the
Mr Men Chess Championships.
There was a big crowd and the tension was palable
.... I managed to push my way to the front just in time to see
Mr Happy defeat Mr Smiley
.... it was a clever and unexpected manoeuvre
but the game ended in handshakes all round
Mr Smiley was heard to say that he had let Mr Happy win
Mr Happy looked very confident and I think it was a well deserved win
after the gane there was much discussion about tactics...
and what could have been...
