#1120 Correspondence Update

This morning I defeated Kenneth E. Jones, bringing my score in the 20th U.S. Correspondence Championship Semi-Finals to 3.5/5 and raising my "live" ICCF rating to 2326.

My opponent varied from Nickel-Loeschnauer: ICCF GM Norm Tourney #34 with 18.Bg5, got into severe time-trouble and started going wrong with 24.Kg2. 27.exf6? let my Ng8 into play and after 29.Qd6?! Black was already winning. I used just 20 days compared to Jones' 200.

Here is a snapshot of the final position and move list:
