Australian Championship round 7

A fun game today against Australia's strongest player. We have met nine times so far and this was our first draw. I won the first seven, admittedly when he was a kid, then he beat me easily in Sydney a few years back and this is game number nine. Statistics courtesy of Yuan.

The opening was a Reti, patiently taught me by an Armenian friend who is not a bad player. We both felt that white got a slight edge in the ending. I got into bad time trouble again but did not blunder anything and despite some wild flaying by both sides the game never departed far from equality.

When I got home there was a nice dinner made for us by an old friend to 30 years Richard Voon. A nice day. Hope you had one too :-)
