Notes:
-------------
(A) Game 25 was especially interesting, transposing as it did into Key Landing No. 2.

At the point where the unusual 1-5 was played, 3-7 22-17; 11-16 23-19; 16-30 31-26; 30-23 27-4; 20-27 32-23; 12-16 25-22; 1-5 is the famous game which Lafferty lost to Tinsley.

However, I believe the afterplay has been corrected to a draw. What is this play?

After 1-5 as played, I would consider 22-17, rather than 24-19, to be best. Continue: 11-16 23-19; 16-30 31-26; 30-23 27-4; 20-27 32-23; 12-16 25-22

Now 3-7 transposes into the Lafferty-Tinsley game - okay if it's a draw -, while 5-9 28-24; 16-20 24-19; 20-24 19-16; 24-27 23-19; 27-31 19-15 (16-12 only seems to draw); 10-19 17-1; 31-26 13-6; 26-17 21-14; 2-18 is quite sweet. Drawn. ( Notes by GM Richard Pask)
