Miguel Garcia - Edward Pinzon
White played 12. Qe2. Can black take on d4?
Black is down two pawns for nothing. How does he slime the opponent?
White played Ke2 here. Why can't he play Kc3?

Garcia ,Miguel - Pinzon,Edward
12.Qe2 so he plays this and I say "hey, why are you hanging your d pawn, why not Rc1?" He starts laughing because he's been waiting for me to say this and then I get the joke and realize if Qxd4 Rd1 traps the queen.
Hughes, John - Garcia, Miguel
32...Rg8 33.Qf3 Bf6 34.Qh3? [34.Rfb1! Rxg2+ 35.Kf1 Bh4 36.Rxh7+ Kxh7 37.Qh5+ Kg7 38.e6+ Bf6 39.Bxf6+ Kxf6 40.Qf7#] 34...Rxg2+ 35.Kh1 Rh2+ 36.Qxh2 Qe4+ 0–1
1.Ke2 [White can't play 1.Kc3 because of 1...g4!]
Uddin,Brittanie - Lobo,Kunal
Britttanie played 30.Rg8+ which is good, but she has forced mate with [30.g4!] 30...Kh7 31.Rh8+ Kg6 32.Rag8+? big mistake, but she went on to win anyway [32.g4!] 32...Kf5 1–0
Congratulations - a truly impressive performance!
Congratulations! Now when are you going to do a report on the high school nationals?
I did one at uschess.org. Not good enough?
Thats odd. I had an experience like that before though. I had Jared Fogle (Blue Devil Knight) come talk to me at a tournament. What a strange person.
