Montana State Championship - Round 3 (Clash Of The Attorneys)
Round 3 was against David Duke, current champion and an attorney at the public defender's office in Billings. I've known David for years, both through chess and through our common acquaintances in the practice of law, but this was my first opportunity to play against him. My play was mediocre up until the end, when I unleashed a crazy combination that I wasn't sure would work, but did. I can say this is one of the most interesting games I've ever played, but also that despite his loss to me, David deserves to be champion because he's an excellent player and knows how to rack up wins (something I'm still wrestling with). Enjoy!
