Minnows v Wallace 29/10/14

Some of the ‘highlights’ of rounds 1-3 were Ian accepting a draw offer when he could have taken a free queen.  Jim W allowing Robin a mate in one instead of simply taking back a rook with the better position and David failing to win a knight and protected pawn v lone king ending! 

Anyway all this generosity led to an exciting 6-6 situation and with Wallace top 3 players playing Minnows bottom 3 the prospects were looking good for the away side.  Alas Minnows played their best round of the season with almost no hiccups, the one exception being Andy forgetting to push his clock, but once he did then Robin resigned his hopeless position.  A tough fight.
