As we've already reported the second part of the competition started quite unsuccesfully for Snowdrops: veterans beat young players 3-1. Actually Oldhands could win with a perfect score 4-0 if Wolfgand Uhlmann wouldn't blunder against Tania Sachdev in the endgame.


The pawn endgame is on the board. According to chess classics the player's understanding of the game becomes apparent in the endgame. Well, there may be any exception to the rule when talking about the opponents from different age categories.
46...a6? The Indian player was really surprised knowing after the game that this move was leading Black to a loss. Well, any GM of the opposite sex could miss consequences of this move in a time trouble.
47.e3?? Uhlmann makes a great present for the lady. He instead had to play Ostap Bender's favourite move 47.e4! And after 47...dxe3 48.fxe3 Kf6 49.e4 fxe4 50.dxe4 c4 51.e5+ Ke6 52.Ke4 Black losses. It's time to remember about a-pawn: if it would be on a7, that'd be a draw, as long as White would need another tempo in order to take it. 52...c3 53.Kd3 Kxe5 54.Kxc3 and White queens its pawn faster.
47...c4 now everything's over. 48.dxc4 d3 49.Kf3 Ke5 0-1
After this win Tania Sachdev has the best personal result in the match: 4 out of 5.

"Did I really have a lost position?"
