USCF Game 36(L): Avestro-Kindred
This game was a sad one for me. I had high hopes coming into this tournament. I had gone 12 games and 7 years without a USCF loss. This was due mostly to my 4 year layoff from 98 to 02. However in round 2 I took a horrible L to my opponent Menlo Avestro from California. I got really carried away with my Sicillian and while it was a bad opening for me, the game is rather interesting. Alvestro was rated 1355 at the time with a peak rating of 1675.
