13th Seniors Congress Day 4

A feature of the “Juniors” section is its closeness, with 6 players in the joint lead on 2 points. Meanwhile, in the Seniors, the story of the round was the win by Norman Stephenson with Black against Yeo, which puts him in the clear lead. He shouldn’t have too much trouble getting a half point with the White pieces to guarantee at least a share of 1st prize. Yet logic has played little part in the proceedings so far, so expect anything.

A key game was played out on the adjacent board, where Everson offered sacrifices left and right, but lost his nerve at the last minute when he felt he might have over-reached himself by going two pieces down, and offered a draw. Norman shook his hand immediately, because he had seen the forced win that Everson had overlooked.

The results are as follows, and all Round 4 games are playable here ▼
