Markowski Open Rd 5, The Best Game winner was Ed Baluran, Baluran vs Chu
Milton vs Tuttle is one of Carey's greatest all time swindles, down two pieces and a Rook, Carey wins the game when Gary steps his King on to the wrong square... Ouch!!
Markowski, Rd 6, The Best Game Winner was Dimitry, Kishinevsky vs Wagner
A recent shot of Dimitry Kishinevsky by Rick Aeria
Here is another game from the Markowski Rd 6, Henderson vs Ensey - this game has the added benefit of being analyzed by Cyrus Lakdawala for his student Robert Henderson and Cy passed it along to me. It was a bit embarassing for me because I failed to win this game after getting a four pawn advantage, but I could never seem to trade Queens or Rooks and my King became exposed to perpetual check.
But my favorite and the Best Game Winner was by Mario Amodeo in Amodeo vs Escobedo
