I apologize for not posting more frequently, I’ve been working a lot recently and just too tired to focus much on chess. However, when Alex King sent me the following annotated game, I had to stop and put it up on the blog. This was played by one of his students recently, who has a current USCF rating of 900. The game’s sophistication is probably a thousand points stronger at least- what do you think?

For those of you who don’t recognize the “bo nu s?” graphic, it’s from this forgotten alternate reality game which I was obsessed with years ago. After scanning the forums, it seems the trail has gone cold.
