No idea, I confess to have only calculated as far as 20...Kh7 and assumed it would be checkmate!
Take the knight on e5 first maybe allowing the other knight to g5?

Re: New ECF junior members charged £13/month?

I don't blame Dave at all Alex. I just wanted to know who might have the power to sort out this fiasco. It's beyond daft :!: Get yourselves elected guys, and sort it out yourself. Plenty of vacancies. That type of barbed comment would be better aimed at someone who hasn't spent many years and 100s ...

Re: New ECF junior members charged £13/month?

My mistake, the title should have read £26/month.

Re: New ECF junior members charged £13/month?

You announced recently that juniors who are new to ECF membership will shortly be given a years free membership. Are these lucky juniors who have been charged £13 for one months membership now exempt from this?

New ECF junior members charged £13/month?

Have juniors playing in the British Champs, joining the ECF for the first time at the beginning of the tournament, been charged £13 for one months membership i.e. it expires at the end of August 2013?

Agreed, though I'm not sure that in his place I'd have devoted five of my last eight minutes (and counting) to his decision at move 25. Still, perhaps the clocks are wrong, and anyway Pete has his own approach to these matters.
Ah I see he didn't!
