In round 5 of the 4NCL, e2e4.org.uk 2 managed a dramatic turn-around against Celtic Tigers 1. After going 2-0 down with losses on the top two boards, wins on the bottom two saw them draw level. After David Coates had held Peter Kemp to a draw on board three, it was all down to me on board four to grind down Angus French in an ending, which I duly did. This gaves us a narrow 3.5-2.5 win at the death.
I give my game below with some notes. It is a good example of the accumulation of advantages. Black doesn’t do anything dramatic, but manages to prevail in the end.
