#777 ICCF Cheats Me, Cancels Games

After I agreed to draw my match on board 32 of the UKR-USA match, the ICCF canceled my games and cheated me out of a 2300+ rating for the 2nd time!

In the 15th U.S. Championship Prelims, I defeated Donna Marie Kremen (who promptly withdrew) and the result was nulled after she died.

I'm supposed to play against the Czech Republic next but am so damn angry and tired of getting screwed that I may withdraw and go back to plant collecting.

Piper crocatum
(Saffron Pepper)

Strobianthes dyerianus
(Persian Shield)

At any rate, there will be no further updates on the joke of a match. For the record, however, here are the hijacked games:

B38 Sicilian Defense
Accelerated Dragon
Maroczy Bind

1.Nf3 c5 2.c4 Nf6 3.Nc3 Nc6 4.d4 cxd4 5.Nxd4 g6 6.e4 d6 7.Be2 Bg7 8.Be3 0-0 9.0-0 Bd7 10.Qd2 Nxd4 11.Bxd4 Bc6 12.Bd3 a5 13.Rae1 1/2-1/2

C06 French Defense

Based on your comments I would recommend starting your collection with Cannabis ruderalis.
