USATE 2012 Wrap

My team had a great time at the Amateur Team 2012. Kola Adeyemi, Brian Karen, Michael Raphael and I played excellent chess for the most part. Our only loss was to a team rated 2199. We scored points in all our games including the one we lost. The organization was excellent. Rob Garcia ( who did not play ) came to watch us play on 2/18 and took some pics which he posted here:

Game w/ Hanon Russell ( formerly ) of chesscafe.com

I played Hanon Russell in round 2 of the USATE 2012. Mr Russell used to run chesscafe.com. I had a better position somewhere in the middlegame and could not convert the advantage. I was probably worse if not losing during some moves of the endgame and my opponent missed the best continuations. The game ended in a draw. More pictures etc. from the tournament later.
