Board 5, Ashby 1 v Wigston 3, 09/01/14

Jan 9, 2014, 3:28 PM |

30 moves in 60 minutes, then additional 20 minutes to complete all moves.

Odd game: one of my worst third moves ever, then a blunder by my opponent which left things looking drawish.  I offered a draw after my 29th move, but by then all other games were finished so my opponent needed a win to save the match.  I then gave him a pawn ... he then gave me one back.  By the end, we each had around a minute left to complete all moves and, whilst I probably had the better winning chances, a draw avoided a nasty time scramble ... and gave us a win against a strong team!
