Don't think so. Ne6 looks OK

EDIT: And there are obviously better moves, such as the one played.

Just posted lastest Corner.

http://www.chessedinburgh.co.uk/chandle ... handID=354

Have had a response already about Shaw/White game.

A few cannot believe that White missed the Queens off move going into a clear won ending.

Shaw - White round 6. Black's 62nd. move.

Can anyone at Torquay verify the PGn is correct?

Thanks to a few of the lads on here for giving me games and ideas for
latest Corner.

(thought I had posted all this already but it has gone ).

Looks like Hebden could still put Tom under some pressure. If Hebbo gets to 7 and a half!

Not sure I get your second sentance - but Conquest-Howell is going to be another time scramble

Indeed. I was just beginning to wonder whether it might have been agreed drawn.

e4 was the best move according to rybka 3.1 but it should of been played before gxh4 .it seems level but conquest cant afford to draw really.
