Robert traded two minor pieces for a rook and pawn early on, then after a misstep won a knight outright before eventually mating.
Jo and her opponent both castled king-side. Jo quickly developed both knights, positioning a bishop on g2, then exchanged two knights for two bishops and won a rook for a knight, ending up in this position:
Facing mate, her opponent resigned.
Keith stated with a knight for bishop exchange, then gained a bishop, leaving him with two rooks, a bishop, and six pawns against two rooks and six pawns, but then David won a bishop back, before swapping off all the pieces. With just pawns left, David promoted, and Keith resigned.
Dave and Martin exchanged off minor pieces, castling king-side, but then Dave gained material, going into the endgame with a rook and five pawns against a knight and four pawns. After some manoeuvring Dave forced promotion, and mate soon followed.
Gordon and Graham swapped queens off early. After some more exchanges he lost a rook for a knight, ending up with a knight and five pawns against a rook and four pawns, then put up a solid defence, reaching this position.
Here, with under 10 minutes left on both clocks, Graham offered a draw, which Gordon quickly accepted.
