Complicated OTB game.

May 14, 2010, 7:31 PM |

My chess team played against another school yesterday. Board's 3 and 4 dropped their queens :( (and of course lost), while the Board 2 player was in deep time trouble (he usually takes a long time for his moves). He was a rook up but had to defend accurately by killing two passed pawns before promoting his own and checkmating the opponent's king in a Q+K vs K. If he had spent 26 more seconds, he would have lost!!!

(Note: ratings are in JCL. Time controls are 1 hour for each player for all moves.)
