Dandies1983 beats the_kid1433
Well played. I thought you were close to finishing me after your Knight sacrifice and then piled on the pressure. But after that I felt I was just about working my way slowly back in, hoping for a mistake from you before I threw away my Bishop and then it was all over.

Cheers.

I've jumped the gun a little, due to the glacial pace of the ongoing Pleslie99 versus Purplekangaroo89 game, so the Madwullie Cup Draw Round 2 is as follows:

--

pleslie99 or Purplekangaroo89 vs XCTR94
invergowrie vs KenDeans
wastecoatwilly vs PnBMathematics
Arabjoe vs AH13STU
Strachanovski vs RBWatson
The_kid1433 vs AimHere
Board_Stupid vs N5_Spur
markf268 vs Dearyme

--

In Division A news, PurpleKangaroo89 managed the pretty impressive feat of making two completely separate material-losing blunders in the same move

AimHere beats PurpleKangaroo89 by resignation

 

I have resigned from my tie so purplekangaroo89 wins by resignation. I was going to continue to try play for a stalemate but that doesn't help anyone. Don't think I was ever in it but managed to hold on for 65 moves which I take as an achievement. Well played PK89

Yeah. What spurred me on to making the draw today was seeing you weren't resigning and PK89 missing a mate-in-2, so I figured that a draw was a realistic possibility, and I didn't fancy waiting another 3 weeks for the replay!

In the cup Board_stupid defeats N5_SPUR by checkmate.

It was really even for the first 20 or so moves, but the game turned on an apparently free pawn that ended up costing a rook.

Good game, thanks. I think the game was yours from early on, and it was just a matter of time before you killed me off. Good luck in the next round - back to the attempt for league survival for me.

68 move epic ending in a draw with KenDeans well played Sir.

How was that a draw? You were dead lost there. Did you just chance a draw offer, and hope that KenDeans was insecure enough to accept?

I offered the draw. Made a booboo but it was a great game to b involved in

I'm not sure what mistake you'd made, other than offering the draw. You were about to win a rook and end up in a R vs QPP endgame, weren't you?

Round 11
Arabjoe vs markf268

Arabjoe wins by resignation.

A freakishly similar game to the game I was playing vs. Pnbmathematics at the same time, my horse was making a nuisance of itself and I was able to fork the King and Queen.

Pleslie999 beats markf268 by resignation.

 

A bit of a tight one, both struggling to breakthrough, then a pawn capture leading to a rook blunder swung the game in my favour. There was still a bit of chess to be played but I assume the resignation was down to a bit of frustration. Thanks for the game.

Yip a wee bit more perseverance and Ken would've got me, it was a surprise he offered the draw some people think two rooks are better than a Queen for the end game a lot of mental gymnastics M8.
