Clash of the Titans! Stokes v Weller – last round RCC Champs. 2021

Here is most of the exciting last round game of the Redcliffe Chess Club Championship played between Mark C Stokes and Tony Weller – It is worth analysing after 30 Rxe3 by White to see what Black should play and again worth trying to find the best for White on move 31 after Black has played 30 ….. Qxa2 too! In the actual game White has a much better move than 32 Qxg8? as well!
