    Hey Trizza, I agree on Ganesh's position. He just played 35... Qb7, but wont e6+ cause him trouble? Or was he trying to create his king some running space? Wouldnt 35....Qg5 be better?

    Can't see the black king surviving if it runs. After e6 Kg8 might be OK. Qg4 looks dangerous for white instead though. Qg5 for black looks a bit better but still no fun.

    White has just taken on g6 instead. Qg2 for black? leads to instant death.
    White has missed a mate in 3 with Bh4 but is still totally winning.

    And Ganesh just tipped the King. Pretty good game though- I was expecting Cronan to play an English after seeing his games in the schools championships.

    I reckon White is better, probably even +/- in the final position of G. Oliver-Ly. Black has nearly an extra hour on the clock but 17 mins plus 1 min per move is enough time to give Black some trouble. Of course, it's another thing when you're playing to watching it sedately from home.

    Angela Song's opponent should have resigned immediately on loss of his queen or else played on until mated. Playing on in dead lost positions then resigning one move before mate against strong opponents is silly. Coaches should discourage this practice.

    If Suttor wins that ending he has the outright lead, for what little being outright leader after four rounds is worth. It doesn't look that easy to convert that though, I'll be impressed if he does it.

    That was exactly what I had in mind.

    These 11-round things are all about peaking at the right time.

    I doubt it, he seems to be playing minus a king...

    It is surely dead drawn now. There will be a great big stack of people on 3.5/4.

    Agreed drawn soon after Suttor dropped the d pawn. The natural Ne3+ seems to be no good, though Kevin was right - not an easy endgame to win with limited time.
