  • Tournament #53, Phi Kappa Blanca LIV 12/11/1993
  • NCSU Student Union, Raleigh, NC
  • TD: Robert Singletary
  • Section: U1800
  • Time Control: 40/90, G/30
  • *Crosstable Link*

 I did not play well in the actual tournament.  In round 1, I managed to steal a half point from a losing endgame and got caught in some really bad tactics in Round 2.  In Round 3, I wasn't really tested and I managed to finish off my opponent in a very quick and very brutal miniature.  With my last game finishing so fast, Robert came to me and asked if I would be willing to play another game.  There was, apparently, a forfieture in the top section and a player had been left without an opponent.  While it was my understanding that this game would also be rated, it ended up being unrated.  Even so, it was a very solid game for me.  I actually held the advantage for a good part of the game and ended up slipping in the end and giving away a drawn position.  That game is being included here:
