Another draw today, but at least it was exciting. It seems quite accurately played until the final moments when I missed a good continuation and then my opponent went for repetition when he had a killer move. So a let-off for me.
I have 3/6 with one more chance to beat 50% for the tournament.
The two leaders have 5/6 and each play a 4.5 in the final round. Brian Valentine lost so stays on 3.5. In the O-50 Graham Smith has paid the price of early Swiss success, losing to IM Paul Littlewood in Round 6 after John Nunn in Round 5.
