Mike Serovey Loses To naj-rsc playing the English Opening

Here is an old correspondence game played at ICC. I played the English Opening, Botvinick System, but misplayed it and got a positional disadvantage. I resigned at the point where I would have been down two pawns. The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
