Twice Bitten, Twice Shy

Game Of The Week

 

This week's game comes from my email match with my Dad.  It has been my Father's Day tradition to publish one of his wins.  This will be the 12th edition.  Happy Belated Father's Day to all the chess dads out there!


In addition to honoring my father, I also get to publish one of my losses.  I have another tradition of publishing 4 losses each year.  So, I have published 49 of my losses to date.  22 of the losses have been as White, and 27 of the losses have been as Black.


Some players think I never choose one of my losses for the Game Of The Week.  Usually, it is the players who have had a loss published by me who think that.


This year that player was Earle Wikle.  I checked my statistics and found out that Earle had gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to the Game Of The Week.  Twice he made the Game Of The Week, and twice it was his loss.  In fact, he had more losses than I did this year.


1 Anderson,Paul 2050 6.0/7

2 McGough,Mark 1854 1.5/2

3 Brown,Dean 1400 1.0/2

4 Friedman,Joe 2221 1.0/1

5 Bloomer,Josh 2241 1.0/1

6 Turner,Larry 1812 1.0/1

7 Brennan,Tim 1800 1.0/1

8 Mekonnen,Alex 1547 1.0/1

9 Rupp,Dan 962 1.0/1

10 Rountree,Brian 1778 0.5/2

11 Wikle,Earle 1950 0.0/2

12 Langseth,DuWayne 1749 0.0/1

13 Fox,Jeff 1706 0.0/1

14 Herman,Sara 1653 0.0/1

15 Williams,Jesse 1317 0.0/1

16 Anderson,Douglas 0.0/1

17 Barlay,Peter 1902 0.0/1

18 Kaye,Dylan 1534 0.0/1

19 Mena,Jerry 1356 0.0/1

20 Kilpatrick,John 592 0.0/1


So, it is no surprise, when Earle and I faced in the Denny's Quick June II and I won, that Earle was a little shy about letting me see his score sheet.  He said I had to have as many losses in the Game Of The Week before I could see it.


Well, here is my 2nd published loss of 2016 and my 50th overall. 


Stay tuned next week for my brilliancy against Earle!
