24...gxf6 is ok but 24...Rc7! is better.

28...Nxh3+!

Apperly was cruising towards his first win of the match but the pressure must have got the better of him as he made a slip with 29...Nf4+? (instead of 29...Nxf2!) and even worse with 30...Nd3? but instead of being punished by 31.Bxd3 Palmer let him off the hook with 31.Qxe4?

After 31...Nxf2! Apperly held on for his first win of the match.

With four games completed the score stood as follows:-

1-1-1-0 (+3 =0 -1) 3/4 Palmer

0-0-0-1 (+1 =0 -3) 1/4 Apperly

The Champion of Queensland to be decided upon the first player to reach seven points.
