I must have spelt Caissa wrong and my auto correct corrected it.
Cassia will be the patron saint of posters who blunder.

[center]Sandy Bells v Musselburgh. Edinburgh Chess League 2018
Last night at a league match. I agreed a quick draw with an
old Edinburgh Chess Club team mate so we could decantto
the bar to drink, play blitz and reminisce about the old days.
The match score was currently 2½ -1½ to Bells.
The Sandy Bells board 4 player saw this position ...[text shortened]... p from a bridge. Black was OK. He happily said it was OK to show it. Final score was 3-3.}[/pgn]
