Great play in all of the games, Josh!

(Wish I had seen your game against the Dutch before I ended up playing against it in the Open! It's been so loong since I've faced it, I could have used a refresher course!)

Hope youi can swewep ethem Sunday also!

Good Luck, Chum!

Nice games Joshua. I really admire your play in that Slav gambit. It's so tempting to play rash when down a pawn, but you calmly and methodically improved your position and won it back about 25 move later. That type of patience is really hard to grasp, at least for me. Enjoy your money!
