This time the hero was Helmut Marko, who is now the teams best scorer with 3.5/9. Joselito Marcos and Rupert Jones both lost, while I scrapped a draw in a game where it looked like I couldn't lose until I made a bad positional choice. I then had to grovel for quite a while until my opponent gave me a chance to reach a
drawn K+P ending, which I took.
The diagrammed position was reached after all 4 rooks had been exchanged down the f file. It is now drawn but I decided to take the shortest path to that goal.
