#959 Corr Update: I Win! USA Trails by 2

This morning my opponent played 52...Ke8 and resigned after 53.g6.

John Moldovan 1-0 Radek Svítil
D38 Queen's Gambit
Ragozin Defense

Notes to this game and our previous draw will follow.

We (the U.S.) now trail the Czech Republic, 21.5-19.5. You can download all the games here.

My next correspondence event will probably be a Master Class or Master Norm tournament. Although my rating is too low for automatic qualification into the latter it may be high-enough (43 points shy of 2350) for acceptance.

I'd also like to enter the U.S. Championship Preliminaries again but can only guess when they would be. (In the fall?)

Nice...keeping the U.S. in contention! (Though the wife is of Czech decent so they hold a little sentimental appeal for me!)
