    (8 may not be understandable for non-UK members.)


    1 Due a job? I will tidy up the pieces.

    2 A pin? Sounds like the best form of defence.

    3 A final row with a friend can end the affair.

    4 Novel and interesting, but we know no-one should win.

    5 Sounds like a competition for sweet fruit?

    6 An idiot’s assistant is as short as they come.

    7 Mr Flash’s title is the best.

    8 Purdy loves Mike’s sacrifice.

    9 You deserve this for leaving a piece unprotected!

    10 Cretin! Men should change and take more time to move.

    Well done, I thought "Purdy" must refer to the Australian master and that "Mike" was Mike Basman.

    Anyway:

    Yes, very nice clues. There must be enough now for someone to create a proper chess-related cryptic crossword?
