Robert Shaw vs Rod Tranter

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.
