Mike Serovey Loses to ThreeofSeven

Here is my third correspondence game with ThreeofSeven at ICC. I won the first two games in which I had White and lost the game in which I had Black. Although I can't prove it I think that my opponent got help in this game from either a computer or a stronger player because his play suddenly improved and he found moves that I missed. If you look at his two losses versus his one win you will see quite an improvement in his play in just two weeks! The entire game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
