Hales Corners G/30 3 Round Swiss

I had great games in both the games I did not win, and could have picked up a lot of rating points, but with only 30 min on the clock many mistakes were made. I still gained a few points.

  1. Win Me vs DEMLER, JOHN A (1527)
  2. Draw FRICANO, PAUL ROYAL (1993) vs me
  3. Loss Me vs MCELWEE, PATRICK (1977)

I had black in round 2 in the position above, and only managed a draw! (Black to play)

Score: 1-1=1
Rating: 1813-1816


  1. There is no such thing as "could have won." There is "won" or "lost" or occasionally "drew." I once had an ending I "could have won" against an IM. But he kicked my ass from a losing position because he was/is a much stronger player, and played much better than I did. Do you catch my drift?

  2. Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
    quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
    different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
    a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
    I made over $900 last month having fun!
    make extra money
