A - To here, also played by R. King v A. Moiseyev US National 1999

B - Came as a surprise.

C - After this I was wringing my hands with glee, thinking I might have some winning opportunities. However, when I later showed the game to Pat McCarthy, he said no!, the White side was never in trouble, having the extra piece.

D - By now some alarm bells were ringing and I decided it was safest to go for the draw here.

We had to wait 2 more years for Dr Tinsley to come over and slay the Beastie. :)
