  • Tournament #11 : Ram, 12/08/90
  • UNC Student Union, Chapel Hill, NC
  • TD:  Robert Singletary
  • Section:  U1400
  • Time Control:  40/90, G/30


This is the first Ram I have on record, as I mentioned in an earlier post, these tournaments were run on Saturdays under the same format as the Phi Kappa Blanca's.  Just like the Ram-bo's, these were also held at the UNC Student Union.

Round 1, Game #28

Round 2, Game #29

Peter was another scholastic player and one that I would run into rather frequently in the U1400 section.  Most of our games would occur in the later rounds and a few would be money games.  Overall, I did not play well in this game entering the endgame down a pawn and even allowing a passed pawn on c3.  My opponent would misplay the endgame and, not only overextend the pawn, giving it back, but would also fail to successfully blockade my pawn.

Round 3, Game #30
