Rob scored one for the home side - he had been up three pawns, but Cyril had been hanging on as hard as he could. Rob then found a way to simplify and get the queens and rooks off. Cue resignation from Cyril.
This left things up to John to win in order to draw the match. I had to leave before this game concluded and things had looked drawish when i left, but then John does tend to play good endgames and obviously found a way.
