Game Of The Week
This week's game comes from the Wednesday night, month long tournament in June.  You get one 3 hour game (G90) each week and the results are combined into a Swiss tournament.  One problem that has arisen is that with so much time between rounds (1 week) some players forget they entered the tournament and fail to show up, causing a forfeit win for someone there.

One participant was very upset when these forfeit wins occurred in the final round, effecting the prize payouts.  So, now we have decided to implement fines, according to USCF rules, to encourage players to remember it is their obligation to contact the TD if they cannot make it any week.

In June, Jason Loving, a local expert, was incorrectly paired and suffered an upset.  He didn't care about the pairing mistake but was disappointed that  he was not going to be facing me in the final round.  Some people have gotten the impression that I breeze through these tournaments winning every game. 

However, I know that is far from the truth.  There have been a couple of times where I have won every round, but it is not easy to do.  My longest streak of USCF wins is 10 games.

In fact, I lost in round 3 and was paired against Jason Loving in round 4.  He got what he wanted after all.  When I failed to beat him, he offered to write about the game for the newsletter.  Here is what he had to say:

So, here's my annotations on the game in PGN format.  I'm not sure how you'll want to display it, whether you'd like to set up the game as playable through or if you play through several moves, put a picture of the position, and continue. I think it would be awesome if you also included your thoughts on the game so it could have both sides.

[Awesome it will be.  My comments will be in brackets from here on.]
