Sorry took so long in replying. I was hoping I'd get a perpetual around about here.

I never saw the mate till it appeared.

  Sally Simpson: Hi Papachess,

I can honestly say I never saw any of that during the game. I only saw that that Rook backed up pawn on a3 and thought I'd had better start wriggling for a draw.

Remember it was an allegro - 30 minutes each.

  keypusher: Gee-off, you had more good ideas in 30 minutes here than most of us have in six months. But I don't think it should have worked. Try 22....f6 for example.

I'm sure you know this game, it's right up your street.

Hi K.P.

Probably half a dozen ways to save that as Black. But I've lost dozens...nay...hundreds or post-mortems but I still get to keep the original game point.

I know the game you link to.

Brilliant chess.

M Surtees vs J Houska, 2008

Instead of big name dropping Sadler should have used my games, Surtees and an Oxford player called Will Burt. (one day they get his games here...C.G. will then just delete every non Will Burt game because nobody will ever play over anything else but Will Burt games.)
