Thursday 11th October, Nomads III vs Darnall & Handsworth
8th October 2012, Clay Cross vs Nomads I
Rod said afterwards my knight capture on move 20 was unexpected, but the slight gain of material did not prove worthwhile.
In the final position, black can almost certainly force a win, but precise play on both sides is required. Rod has to avoid perpetual check, and keep his pawn majority; I have to avoid forced queen exchanges. Instead, Rod accepted a draw.
