Just when White can win a piece the game is agreed drawn. 1.g3 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.c4 e6 4.Bg2 c6 5.0-0 Bd6 6.d4 Nbd7 7.Nbd2 0-0 8.Qc2 e5 9.dxe5 Nxe5 10.cxd5 Nxd5 11.a3 Bg4? 12.b3? [112.Nxe5 Bxe5 13.Qe4 and White wins a piece.] 1⁄2-1⁄2

(8) Murphy,Richard − Ryba,Nicolas [B06]

QCC 2007 Futurity (2), 13.07.2007

(9) Murphy,Thomas − Arluck,William [C02]

24.Kf2 h6 25.cxd4?? Rxc1 0-1

(10) Ryba,Andrew − Lawson,Brian [A43]
