Fantastic win yesterday by Irelands Pete Morriss (FIDE rating 2032) against a 2448 Russian GM (6 times Moscow champion – Evgeni Vasiukov ) in the 65+

that game had a lovely tactical finish..well worth a look

no kidding Sherlock :)

Arkell winning against Hebden move 20 Nd5 (probably a lot earlier than that too but after Nd5 it was all one way traffic) :)

presumably the 0.5 0.5 is a mistake 1 - 0 presumably (unless they agreed draw before the game started? )

Surprising, if it was a draw.

Keith and Mark played a very similar line at the Delancey International in May. It was a quick draw then; maybe Keith's done some work on the line in the meantime.

Nunn looked busted after the tactic 32 Nd6 ...xF5 and Rd1

Sheshnikov played 32 Rf3 instead

Really? 32.Nd6 Rh3 33.Nxb7 Rxg3 doesn't look trivial for white, and suddenly the third result may be coming into the picture.

Black still has very real drawing chances. R+N v R is a draw, and those two white pawns aren't exactly the easiest to hold.

I am guessing every Russian schoolboy knows that R+N v R is a draw :) but yes getting very interesting now

Nunn went down to 1 second! time control made

this is going to be a long drawn out game.... yes good drawing chances

could be a great escape by Nunn if he pulls it off

I think I see Nunn's drawing plan: he wants to play ...Re4, swap the rooks off, and stick his king on f3. That ties down the knight to the defence of the g-pawn and the king to the defence of the knight (because the black e-pawn is too far advanced), and he then sends his b-pawn down the board to overload white's pieces.
