<< #41 Ram LXXII -- #43 Phi Kappa Blanca >>


  • Tournament #42 : Phi Kappa Blanca, 12/5/92
  • NCSU Student Union, Raleigh, NC
  • TD: Robert Singletary
  • Section: U1800
  • Time Control: 40/90, G/30
  • Crosstable Link

With the Ram series concluded, this blog will be going through a stretch of almost exclusive Phi Kappa Blanca tournaments.  I'll do my best though to keep these from getting too monotonous.  Anyway....I'll start this one with another group I used to listen to a lot back in those days, Kansas.

 


This set of games continues, what is probably, my longest stretch of games without a win (+0 =5 -4).  Rounds 1 and 3, my 2 draws in this tournament, contain some great endgame lessons (for both sides).  In fact, in those games, both white and black pass on opportunities to steal wins and eventually end up drawing.  Round 2 simply ended on a horrendously bad blunder.

 

Round 1, Game#123

 
Round 2, Game#124
 
Round 3, Game#125
 
  • Recap: +0 =2 -1
