     Well out of 5 conference games, we've had 5 sweeps, but this game definitely shows that I have much to improve on. As state gets closer and closer it becomes more important that I analyze our games. This game, my match against Plano, features a QGD that I closed with 9. c5. While I maneuver myself to a distinct positional advantage, I make a number of mistakes that allow my opponent to equalize. With 30 seconds on my clock, I end up winning an interesting endgame. Without further ado, here it is:

     Looking at this game, it's clear that I need to work more on my tactics and consolidating winning positions. b4 and Ra3 were mistakes that I cannot make in the future.
