As it stands now at the end of Day 6, we have 6 players on 5 points and 6 on 4.5. We don't seem to have anyone who actually wants to win!.
Game of the day had to be the titanic battle between GM Colin McNab and perpetual Scottish Champion, IM Roddy McKay
It was a very good game and there were many comments on the sites that are broadcasting the games about the chess. 2 fine Gentlemen indeed!
My other game of the day was nearly a tale of woe (cue Hovis theme music).
Carl Milton was playing Duncan Walker when the following position was reached
White (Carl) has clearly checkmated black. Ah but says Duncan, I don't believe you, lets see you do that again.. The game continued with 39..Kg6 40.Nxh6 Kxh6. Eventually on move 46 black sees the error of his ways and resigns in the following position
|First Person to get 2 Checkmates in the same game at the Scottish!|
Of course, Alex and I were wondering, Do we give Carl 1 point or 2???
