"GO GAWAIN!!!"

Not the usual calm behaviour we expect! But entirely justified - great result.

Terrific result.

Gawain on Twitter:
"Well I didn't make it easy for myself. Thought I'd blown it when I squandered a 2-0 lead against David, such elite players don't tend to give you second chances. Got my luck in the Armageddon. Then a Dragon punt and Scotch Gambit opening trap sees me over the line #Katowice2020."
