    And nobody under master strength is allowed to play? I would probably embarrass myself🙂

    I'm afraid White should have smelt a rat, strong players like Andrew Greet rarely give away pawns for nothing!

    That's one of the reasons I've never played in the 4NCL - you go all all that way and pay for an evening meal and a night in a hotel for just two games of chess. Imagine how annoyed you'd be if you were White in this game and your day's play was all over in ten minutes!
