Pittsburgh Open: Round 2 (03/12/2016)

Mar 12, 2016, 11:45 AM |

This was the first game of the 2nd day of the Pittsburgh Open. Still haven't fully recovered from being sick yet...but I'm getting there...

At least no blunders on my part for this round, so yay.

This was a rather quick round, against an unrated man who blundered a couple of pieces...

I also missed a faster winning mate in oneĀ later in the game, as I was so focused on just closing his king in to the edge of the board with a rook + eventual queen (from promoted pawn). Thank goodness it was not a missed mate in one => lose the game situation for me, whew. If I were on the other side of the board, and just missed it despite it being avoidable, that'd suck.
