Jon won a grinding ending R+N v R+B. A really good knight v a pretty bad bishop. Jon said he could play the position all day…from what I saw Nigel pushed his King side pawns and gave Jon targets. Nigel was short of time
Chris won a nice game just overpowering Andy. Final position double rook ending but chris’s rooks doubled on 7th as would eliminate all Andy’s pawns with mate threats.
Andrew’s game was probably influenced by that fact that he had to get home quickly. A straightforward enough draw.
Mine was pretty poor. 3 pawns down for nothing. I was about to resign but I had more time and Dave blundered a rook and resigned immediately.
Arjun was last to finish. I thought that he had slightly the better of the middle game but in went down to R+1 each Drawn. I suspect that neither had a deal of time.
Henry’s game has been posted. It was a draw. It fluctuated every time I went to look
Steve’s game looked very drawing. Q’s off early, most pieces on odd squares. Eventually Steve had B v N and won a couple of pawns.
Pete on board 8 started off as a Morra and Brendan had a little pressure, Pete played very cautiously to equalise. I didn’t look at any of the games for a while so I was surprised to find Pete’s knights at h3 and f2 with the white king at g3. At first glance I could not see anything dynamic but Pete certainly stood better, and was still his pawn up. There must have been some explosion because the game finished quickly after that.
