Leicestershire Major, Rd 5 (played early), N Chalashkanov v S Dawkins

Jul 16, 2015, 3:22 PM |

All moves in 80 minutes, with a 10 sexond increment.

I got a good position out of the opening, but allowed my opponent to equalise.  I offered a draw after the exchange of rooks (I had 20m left, my opponent about 50m), but he turned it down as he needed a win to keep pressing to win the tournament.  His final plan was simply flawed, allowing me a slightly lucky win.
