Song in Lucky Escape

Song and Capilitan drew their game today in the 5th round of the NSW Championships. After finding himself in a terrible position, the junior made a tactical draw offer. Luckily, it seems that Capilitan had somewhere else to rush off to and so happily accepted.

On other boards, Cabilin and Atzman-Simon had quick wins against Reitmans and Mendes da Costa respectively. These games are available below.

Whereas in the U1600 section, Miranda finally surrendered the tournament lead to Hoving. Miranda could manage only a draw against Wong, while Hoving won a piece against NSWCA PR officer, Trent Parker.
