In a crunch game Andrew won both games against George. Andrew won the first game conclusively ending up with half a dozen passed pawns. In the second game George had a strong positional advantage, but made a blunder due what he put down to the tension of the game.

 

Andrew’s other game was against Harvey. Harvey had a strong initiative in the first game, but perhaps played overcautiously allowing Andrew to break back into the game. Harvey did not play so well in the second game, losing pawns for no compensation in the middle game.

 

Brian managed a draw in his first game with Harvey due to what he claimed was brilliant positional play. What actually happened is that Brian was left with a king that couldn’t move and a rook that continually checked and harassed Harvey’s king around the board. Harvey, not being able to avoid capturing the rook and giving stalemate, conceded the draw.
