Philadelphia Open 2011. Holt vs Torres

Apr 22, 2011, 6:34 PM |

It's a little unfortunate that the Philadelphia Open this weekend coincides with the US Championship. I'm not competing in the event, but I'm interested in some of the games. Here is one where FM Conrad Holt turns in a lackluster performance and gets an undeserved draw in an ending that he should lose.  The game is of interest to me because it features positions that I sometimes play.

While Holt's handling of the white side is underwhelming, it gives me hope.  2400 players aren't gods afterall.
