Mike Serovey Loses to Jerome Lindsey

Here is a game that I played back in 1985 when I was stationed in Giessen, Germany. The game was played at the air force base in Frankfurt. In that tournament I lost the first 3 rounds and finally won Round 4. I don't show a Round 5 in my notebook, but I thought that these tournaments went 5 rounds back then. Anyway, the complete game with analysis and diagrams can be found at This was my first loss to Jerome Lindsey and the very first time that I had played the Milner-Berry Gambit in a regular OTB tournament. My second loss to Jerome can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
