The Millchessial

Posted by Paul Anderson on June 24, 2019 at 6:55 PM

Game Of The Week


I have played 1000 USCF-rated games.


I knew the milestone was approaching and figured that I would publish the game.  However, there is a gap of time between when I record my game for my TD database and when I move it to my USCF database.  Due to this gap, I didn't notice that I had played 1000 games when I published it, just because I liked the ending.


https://cschess.webs.com/apps/blog/show/46752950-the-end-of-a-thing


It was fitting that my 1000th game was against my most common opponent, Mark McGough.  He is a big fan of my newsletter and is always impressed that I can tie any chess game to a verse in the Bible.  I asked him what is his favorite verse.


Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.

Ecclesiastes 7:28 (KJV)


And since he suffered through having his endgame loss published as my actual 1000th game, I will reward him with getting his endgame win published to commemorate my pseudo-Millennial game, the Millchessial!
