USCF Game 58(D): Ladd-Kindred
Round 5 was an interesting round because 1st place was still possible if certain matches were drawn or lost. As it turned out there was a 7 way tie for 1st place. It was interesting because we all felt like big time GMs agreeing to draws before it was even necessary lol. My game was an agreed draw after just 22 moves. My opponent offered a draw as soon as the table next to us drew meaning 1stplace was assured if we drew. Our game was in conclusive and maybe perhaps my opponent had a slight positional advantage. My opponent was Paul Ladd and was rated 1446 at the time with a peak of 1516.
