Two graded friendlies were played with Stuart McKinney holding his nerve to win a rook and pawn ending against Allan McDiarmid. It had looked like the white pawn on d file was going to be strong for white and Stuart naturally focussed on meeting this threat. In the position shown black could have finished more quickly by pushing pawn to b3 where it would soon queen or force loss of material.
