Karpovs-Chess Mates Synopsis

A shocking, last-second reversal gave the Kenilworth Karpovs a 3-1 victory over Chess Mates and sole possession of 1st place last night in Rahway.

Max Sherer put the visitors ahead at the 2 hour mark and Ian Mangion drew to set the table for clinching but the match turned as Steve Stoyko was denied by Ari Minkov and a likely full point on board 4 turned into certain loss.

However, with an extra piece and the clock in his favor, Chess Mates' Joe Renna tragically missed a win and allowed Joe Demetrick, who was down to the 5-second increment, to mate him.
