#1108 Another Update On 20th U.S. Corr. Ch. Semis

Yesterday, I won against Lester Weiss, in the U.S. Correspondence Championship Semi-Finals.

Here's a quick rundown on the game, which started on September 13th:

Black tried to neutralize my Q's Gambit Exchange by going into an ending but a slight mistake on move 14 let me secure an edge. I eventually created a passer and forced him to sac a pawn. A shot on turn 29 increased my advantage and 10 moves later my foe capitulated, though he probably did so prematurely.

I can't post the score until at least 1 more game in my section is finished. For a look at the standings click here.
