Turkey Open - Round 4

Oct 31, 2017, 8:49 PM |

I took a bye in round 3, which was set to begin at 6:30 on Saturday evening after I had played a long game against Robert Martin. With two points in the bag, I prefered to take the easy half point and spend the evening watching scary Halloween movies with my girlfriend and her daughter. The next morning I awoke feeling refreshed and ready for battle.

In round 4 I confronted Mike Jensen, himself a former state champion and someone I had never beaten before. Our games from years ago always resulted in draws, but this time things got a little more interesting. I scored a win with some fancy footwork in the endgame.
