Mark Hassall v Ben Edgell
Cornwall A v Somerset A 2014/15 (Bd.2)
The most interesting game of the Somerset match. Mark gains a winning advantage in a tactical middle game but does not have enough time to secure the full point.
A surprise; I've not seen him play this before.
First time I've played this variation.
I spent half my remaining time on the next move and the game was then completed at a fast pace.
40.Nf7+ +-. I exceeded the time limit playing 40.b3. Ben offered me a draw as he said he doesnt like winning like that. He has a reputation as a sporting player. We could probably all learn from his example.
