{This was my shortest draw ever. I knew he’d been over 1900, the sections
were getting ready to merge and I needed the rest. …b5 is a novelty I
hadn’t prepared for and he offered twice. After the round I discovered that
he’d seen my history and was concerned was the reason he offered. It worked
out well.} 1. d4 d5 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. Bf4 a6 4. e3 e6 5. Nf3 Bd6 6. Ne5 b5 7. Bd3

world open 4-1

{Castling and Qf3 would have held on to a slight advantage. I
could feel it was gone.} 8. Qe2 Bxe5 9. Bxe5 Nbd7 10. Bf4 c5 11. Qf3 c4 1/2-1/2

Ok, 3.5 of 4 took a long nap to get ready for the next round!
