Notes

Game 1 is a draw (a draw scores zero for each player).
Player A sacrifices two cards in the first four moves; he runs out of 'cards in hand' to play on the 8th move and thus uses his eighth played card (the black bishop) also as his ninth move (he can only do this, and must do this whilst his opponent still has cards in hand to play).
Player B cannot follow in suit, but he can by piece type, and the game is a draw.

Text notation:
Note that sacrificed cards are placed in brackets.

Scoring:
Player B mates on the 6th move in Game 2 with a queen, having sacrificed one card during play.

Score = 11 x (6 + 1) = 77
Player B wins the match.
