It's Not Late If It's Still Trending

Game Of The Week


This week's game comes from my email match against my dad.  It started in 1996 and lasted until 2010.  We played 53 games, and the score was even until 2003 (+12-12=9).  The final 20 games went in my favor and showed a marked improvement in my game (+10-3=7).  The match was the reason I started going to the Colorado Springs Chess Club and started playing in the USCF.


When I started writing about chess in 2004, I made it a tradition to publish my dad's wins on Father's Day.  Sometimes I would not get the newsletter out on time since it can be busy for me as well.  This year I went to see Wonder Woman on Father's Day (since Wonder Dad does not exist) and did not get the newsletter out. 


However, I noticed that the hashtag FathersDay is still trending.  I guess a lot of children didn't get their act together.  So, here is a game for all those chess Dads out there!
