Mike Serovey Defeats Phil Curtis With The English Opening

Posted below is the PGN format notation of my game at ICC against Phil Curtis. This game ended up being an English Opening against a Sicilian Defense. I was able to get a passed pawn in the Center and an attack on the f file against a Knight on f6. I then went up the exchange again and was up a Rook instead of just a Knight. Black continued to make errors and finally resigned when I captured his last Rook and queened a pawn at the same time. The entire game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at
