Mark Bryan 0-1 Marios Savva

Marios Savva wins the first game with ease against Mark Bryan. Mark did not play the French Defence correctly and played b3 and c4 at the wrong time to go a piece down early on, then he continued to play recklessly and with three pieces down, finally resigned.

Again Marios Savva came out of the opening with an advantage. Mark tried to get some play by sacrificing a piece for some pawns which worked until Mark became too greedy and took a pawn, which cost him the game.
