Game Of The Week
This week's game comes from Katie Wise, one of the top juniors and females in Colorado chess.  I first played her in 2009 just after I hit expert [2002], and she was at her low of 1206.  Since then she has skyrocketed, while I have only made modest improvements on my peak rating [2058].

Except for a streak of three games in 2011, I don't match up well against Katies.  My total combined record against all Katies is +5-7=0 for a winning percentage of 42%.  While that is not my worst amount of losses to a particular female name, it is very close.  Katie is only a half point behind the female chess name I hate the most (Anthea)!

Of course, there are twelve male chess names that top the female chess names in sticking me with losses over the chess board (losses, name):

  • 42.0    JEFF
  • 37.5    BUCK
  • 22.0    JOSH
  • 13.5    DAN
  • 13.0    VIRGIL
  • 11.5    BRIAN
  • 9.5    DEAN
  • 9.5    JASON
  • 9.5    JOHN
  • 9.0    ROBERT
  • 8.0    ANDREW
  • 8.0    MARK

So, I think just hearing the name of my opponent in my last game at the July Panera Wednesday tournament struck such fear in my mind that I was afraid to even play the simplest of moves.  In this position, it is white to move...
