#80 Checkmate Qualifier - Round 1

The qualifying phase of the 2007 Checkmate Championship started last night with Bert Shiffman (1434) drawing top seed Bob Sherry (1812) & Ted Mann (1437) besting Juan Huaman. I defeated Joe Azzarello.

Bert, as it turns out, missed a win in the Bishop ending :

after 43...f5

White to win

Here are the
crosstable, Java Replay page & zipped PGN file for the 3-round swiss.

Annotations will follow at some point.
