Game Of The Week
This week's game comes from Isaac Martinez, who is in a heated battle for the 2nd quarter Tuesday Night Chess Tour prize ($10 Starbucks gift card).  I ran away with the prize in the first quarter, but Isaac has his eyes on the prize this quarter, even knocking me off with my own opening in the Thematic Swiss and claiming the 1st place points.

Blinded by my brilliance!

We met again at the Wednesday Night Panera tournament on May 22nd.  It was a tough game and easily could have been drawn.  However, Isaac missed a tactic in this position.  It is White to move...
