Portland Spring Open pt 3

Round 3 was the last round of Saturday. By this time I was exhausted as I had gotten 5 or so hours of sleep friday night, and I had been playing chess all day. I played Stephen Buck, who I think won the Reserve section of the tournament. When I left at the end of Sunday he was still playing, but was winning his game. We were both 2/2 (though .5 of my 2 was sort of a joke). This is the only game I lost, and I think up until the endgame, I had drawing chances.

He was another elderly gentleman, probably late 50s to late 60s, I can't really tell. He was rated 1760, which is near the 1800 cap for the reserve section, so, it wasn't much surprise that he won.
