Buschgans-Massey, Challenge Match 2005

Scott and Richard's post-game analysis draws a crowd.

NM Scott Massey agreed to play Richard Buschgans (who has been studying with FM Steve Stoyko) in a friendly challenge match this evening. It was a closely contested game until Richard blundered in time pressure. Overall, though, it was an impressive performance by the rising young A-player against the life master and many-time club champion.
