Knockouts Fit to be Tied vs. Champions

In week seven of the PRO Chess League, the Miami Champions landed a Wednesday punch by drawing their match against the New Jersey Knockouts, since NJKO needed a win to prevent being eliminated from the playoffs.

FM Praveen Balakrishnan avoided the usual 9.h3 against GM Bassem Amin but soon dropped a pawn and went down for the count in a queen-and-pawn ending.
