McKay's sacrifice seems to have given him a good game, but no doubt Arkell will turn it round in time.

Wonder if I get accused of heresy for admitting substantial doubt as to the health of blacks position :) It looks absolutely horrible and has for several moves. Maybe white will somehow run out bits to force a win with though.

Can you elucidate? When did Boris Furman play in Gibraltar?


Sorry, David, I am obviously getting Furman mixed up with somebody else.

If White can find the right moves, he will win. Which is bad news for supporters of Keith, but would still be a British win. Most lines seem to end up with White regaining one of the exchanges and being several pawns up as well. Some difficult lines to calculate, though...

I think 24 Ng6 is a forced draw if he wants it?

Keith very short of time. I would guess it is a draw now, though.

EDIT: Oops. Should have kept quiet. :roll:

Did Pritchett really miss a simple win with 26...Rxc6?

Roderick McKay has won. He is going very well. Still on 100%.

Pritchett is going to win anyway, another excellent result.

Seemingly. Maybe a rook move transmitted wrong? The way his opponent threw away a draw later is strange as well.

Fantastic start for Craig and Roddy; the latter's play is perhaps reminiscent of Lucerne 1982? Obviously I wish my boys all the best in Reykjavik but I think this competition is more interesting.
