Game Of The Week
When I started this website, I was hoping to get people to send me some games and news. So far, I have received several news items. I am very appreciative to those folks who have sent in the news items as I think it adds to the enjoyment of the newsletter and makes my job easier.
Well, I finally got someone to give me some games! It was none other than this week’s tournament winner at the CSCC, Brian Wall. Not only did he beat everyone he faced, but he also was able to keep score in every game in a G/15 time control.
The fastest time control that I have been able to keep score in and play well is G/29. I did see someone keep score in a blitz tournament (G/5) which was very impressive to me until I found out he lost every game.
Anyway, the first game Brian gave me was the one we played in the 4th round of this week. I had 3 points, and he had 3 points. If I could have won this game, I would have won the tournament. My strategy was to stay ahead in time and hope for a blunder on his part. However, around move 27 I lost my time advantage and crumbled under the time pressure.
