Saratoga Open games


I thought I'd put up my games from the Saratoga Open held at Saratoga Springs Feb. 27-28, 2010 just past. I only played three rounds, but all of these games were interesting.

Oh, well, at least it was a fun game and a departure from my usual style.

And finally, my last-round game, LeCours,A (1958) - Sells,P (2006):
