On December 24th I drew William Morris, in the U.S. Correspondence Championship Semi-Finals.
My opponent played a King's Indian, an improvement at move 18 and easily defended a pawn-down ending, as his 2 Knights and better structure compensated for my 2 Bishops.
In SWE-USA, we now lead 38.5-17.5. Not much has changed in my game, as I took a 39-day think from Nov.27-Jan. 5.
The U.S. also has a 9-6 edge over AUS/NZL but trails England 16.5-15.5. Again, 2 games remain in GER-USA.
