Re-Match With Antonius Raelund
I had the pleasure of playing against Montana's new state champion, Antonius Raelund, in yesterday's Game/30 Championship hosted by Greg "the Octopus" Nowak. Back in September Antonius thrashed me at the closed tournament, where I was not playing well at all (likely because of too much drink). This time it was my turn to do the thrashing. Though I did not record any games because of the short time control, I snapped a photo near the end of this one and reconstructed the final combination that won it for me. (I went on to play Greg himself in the final round and got a draw, so he and I shared first place.) I'm sure Antonius will be back, and stronger than ever.
