USCF Game 12(L): Weber-Kindred
In game 12 which is the 3rd round of the Chicago Open I again get a winning position only to let it slip away. This was a very bad start in a tournament I was really hoping to do well in. I end up re-entering after this loss against Jon Weber who was rated 1144 at the time with an all-time high rating of 1181. Very bad play from me all in all. I had yet to find consistency in my games in 1997 and after starting well, finish badly.
