The adjourned games in the second round were concluded last night.>

Christenson v Lancaster (Queen's Gambit declined) - Mr. Christenson won a brilliant partie. Dr. Lancaster, however, had the game in his own hands at one time, and subsequently could have forced a draw.>


<(a) 6… PQKt3 <6...b6>

Allowing Marshall’s favourite attack to come on.>

<(b) 9… BKt5 <9...Bg4>

Bishop would perhaps be better posted at Kt2 <b7>>

<(c) 10… PQB3 <10...c6>

An error; PKR3 <h6> is the correct move.>

<(d) 16. PKKt4 <16.g4>

If RKt <Rg1> there seems to be no defence for Black.>

<(e) 27. QRKt! <27.Rdg1>

Of course if RxQ 28 R mates <27...Rxf7 28.Rg8#>>

<(f) 32. RKKt6 <32.Rg6>

If RQKt5 <Rb5> White must win. The text move is invaluable time frittered away.>

<(g) 36. RxB <36.Rxg7>

An unnecessary sacrifice. RQ6 <Rd6> seems quite satisfactory.>
