Hi MIck! Thanks a lot for the support.

I'd already completed a 'game' of chess before some of you got out of bed this morning :P

People have criticised Keith over the years for drawing with 2600+ opponents, so I fear to think what they will say about this.

They'll crucify me Nick! Really at my age I ought to play at least 300 games a year and average at least 80 moves per game :lol:

Here's a link to the live games. If we can draw 2:2 we'll be in a fantastic position as we are outright leaders after 3 rounds, but the final 2 games look difficult...

You're welcome

It is the quality of the moves, not the quantity :wink:

Terry Chapman's position on board 4 (currently at move 41) looks like the sort of position that would suit Keith!

I predict a draw, but he needs to win to draw the match.

Doesn't 46...b5 just win for Black? (Oh, oops, Rook on c5 protected by pawn on d4 - I'll shut up again now!)

Pity. Still in second place on tie-break (if the chess-results site are using the correct calculations).

Keith's game looks very interesting today(move 26). On a knife edge.
