Board 3, Ashby 2 v Wigston 4, 27/10/16

Oct 28, 2016, 5:09 AM |

ALl moves in 75m, 10s increment from start.

A fairly dreadful game for two supposedly reasonable players.  My opponent missed a fork and blundered a piece, I then missed a pin and blundered a piece back.  Afterwards, as often these days, I felt I should have been better in the endgame, but could not work out how to win.

To make matters worse, I looke for ages at 19. Nxg5, which wins, but miscalculated so did not arrive at the correct outcome which would have been a piece AND two pawns up, also that the position I finally agreed a draw in was actually winning for me!
