Chess Life Online article about Alexis/MLK

Shaun Smith wrote a nice article about Chess in the Schools' MLK day tournament; Alexis Paredes won the championship section.

If you'll forgive my using your page as a proxy (you will, won't you?), I have a comment on the article, specifically on the game Corbblah-Sher. I address it to Mr. Corbblah, if he is reading this (he is, isn't he?). It's completely plain to me that Sher knows he dodged a bullet and is desperately afraid you will try the Blackmar-Diemer again next time. Don't let him hornswoggle you, Jonathan.

I also have to say that if Sher was going to include a game of his own rather than by the tournament winner, it should have been a much, much more interesting one.

Leon,

At the time it was the only game I had access to. I wanted to get one of Alexis' games, but since I had a limited time frame, and could not get a hold of Alexis, I was limited to the game in question. Perhaps Elizabeth will post one of his games on her blog.
