San Antonio City Championship
S ANDERSON & G STANLEY tie for first with 4.5/5.0
I finished with 3.5/5.0 I lost to the top seed NM Selby Anderson in round 2 & took a last round bye.
I thought that Black could hold this ending. Although White can create a passed pawn in the middle of the board, I thought that Black had enough resources to defend. I played ..Ng5 to go into a Bishop vs Knight ending. But I think that was was a mistake.
I went over the position with an Expert and he suggested ...a5.
