The Great Escape

In tonight's Division 2 match between Adastral Park and Bury St Edmunds B, Adastral's Board 1 Ed Kirkham managed to con his higher-graded opponent into a draw.   Two pawns down with a piece en prise, Ed played ...Nd2 in the following position:


After a brief think, Bury's Rob McCorry took the bishop on a6, only to be hit by ...Re1+ and ...Nf1+.   Perpetual check!
