  • Tournament #9 : Phi Kappa Blanca, 10/27/90
  • NCSU Student Union, Raleigh, NC
  • TD:  Robert Singletary
  • Section:  U1400
  • Time Control:  40/90, G/30

 

This would be my first tournament playing 3 games without a loss.  All my other cash finishes to this point included a bye at some point.

 

This one ended up being a very crazy, back and forth game.  I ended up losing a piece for 2 pawns, but my opponent misplayed the endgame allowing me to win the piece back on the threat of promoting a pawn.  I ended up accepting a draw prematurely and would have won had I declined and played it out.

 

Round 1, Game #22


 

Les had just started studying the King's Gambit and having played against him at the Raleigh Chess Club, I had a decent idea how to defend it.

 

Round 2, Game #23


 

Tom was, and still is, one of my favorite rivals and most common opponents.  Most of our games took place in these U1400 sections and I recall most of our games being fairly competitive.  Some of them being, as this one was, tactical slugfests.

Round 3, Game #24
