Enpas mate

 GM Nicholas Pert has won the 2021 British Championship, ahead of a much smaller field than usual (due to Covid in part). He scored 6.5/9 to finish half a point ahead of 5 other players. Along the we he scored an interesting win against promising Scottish junior Freddy Gordon. For most of the game a draw looked to be the likely result, until a mistake towards the end allowed Pert to finish with an unusual checkmate.
