Couldn't you have added this to one of the other 3,487 British Championship threads?? :?:

no it needed to stand out as it was a very bold comment.

Hey c'mon chaps,can a man not have an occasional poor peformance in peace,without the vultures gathering :oops: :(

My thinking has been a bit wonky this tournament :?

I think today I played a good game,but have no idea why I didn't play
51.. f4+ winning by
force(eg 52 Kg2 Re1 or 52 Kg4 e3!).I looked at it,saw no defence,but
played 51..Rd1 instead,thinking that was also winning.

What I missed was that if I play 53..Rg1+(53...e3 54 Kf3! doesn't
help) he can draw with his N v my R + P with 54 Kf4 Rf1+ 55 Ke5 d1=Q 56 Rd1 Rd1
57 Ne3! and it's a book draw,or here 54...d1 = Q 55 Nd1 Rd1 and again
Ne3! draws.

Credit to my young opponent though for hanging on in there.
