In his final game today, against Romanian IM Alina L'Ami (pictured right), Alan (Black) arrived at the following position. Can you work out his next move? (Answer below the diagram).
Alan played 31... Qa5! The queen cannot be taken, because of mate with Rf1 etc. White continued 32. Rad1, when Black again offered his queen with ... Qxd2. White took the queen with 33. Qxd2, to be hit with 33... Nf2+, when White must hand back the queen and give White an easy ending.
Justin Tan and Dagne Ciuksyte, both IMs already, finished on 4½ points, whilst the fourth Suffolk entrant, Ed Player, finished on 3½.
