My Memorable Games #9, The worst game I didn't lose!
Yes...I got slack with my posts. I'm still going through my collection and it turns out my database is more incomplete than I expected. I've had to modify my W/L record (I actually DO have 200 losses right now and it's very possible I found #201...just need to validate it).
But there are a few games I can go ahead and through out there. This one occured at the US Amateaur Team Championships (East) in Parsipany, NJ. I would go every year with the Point A Chess Club. On this occassion, we actually had 5 players and instead of rotating with an alternate, I decided to search for a team with 3 players. I found one and was set to play on board 2. In round one, we were set to play a scholastic team. Not unusual for this tournament. Barely 10 minutes and few moves into the round, I would atually hang my queen. It was an inoprotune time for a blunder like that and I wondered how my new teammates...complete strangers...felt about me. I played well the rest of the weekend and made up for the blunder.
Anyway...here's the worst game I somehow managed not to lose.
