Draws snatched from the jaws of victory and from the jaws of defeat.

Forest Hall Owls, Squirrels and Foxes all had games this week


Here are a couple of photos which show the final positions from two of the games.

In the above position Joshua Price (white) has just played his pawn from f3 to f4 and a draw was agreed.

Can you find an alternative move (instead of f4) which is a forced win for white ?


John Thomas finds a way to draw when a piece and a pawn down.

Black’s last move was Qb2 and John found Qf6+ after which the players shook hands and agreed a draw.
