Next is my #50th draw in USCF play, also from a Phi Kappa Blanka. One of many games that I really shoud have lost, but somehow managed to scratch and claw my way to a better result. That will be a common theme in my games. While I've never really been consistant enough to be a great player, I have always maintained a degree of tenacity that has allowed me to escape some pretty tough positions. This was one of those games. Yes...I lose games, but I through every realistic shot at my opponents before I give in.
