Bet that got your attention! Okay, so it wasn’t my game. Master Josh B. dropped a rook against Alexander, from Russia (who will perhaps make Expert now with this draw), and still managed to draw the game! Josh was up two pawns, and should have won a third pawn, but instead decided to win an exchange, which actually hung a rook. However, ChessMaster Josh B. rebounded and drew with king+rook+3 pawns against king+rook+bishop+2 pawns.
In my actual game against Scott, he hung a piece right from the git-go, and we both used less than half an hour on our clocks to finish the game.
Actually, I’ll probably play Josh as Black this Thursday – projected pairings – so stay tuned. ;-p (btw, I’ve never seen him drop anything before last night).
