Mike Serovey Loses to fhunfi

Every month ICC has a standard tournament that is played on Tuesday nights. For this month Round 1 was played on December 5. I got paired against fhunfi (Chien Ming) and played the Black side of an English Opening. The game actually looked more like a Maroczy Bind versus a Sicilian Dragon. I made an error that caused me to lose my Queenside pawns and thus resigned. I forgot to show up for Round 2 until it was too late and thus forfeited that round. I then withdrew from the tournament. The game from Round 1 is quoted below in PGN format. The game, with diagrams and analysis, can be found at
