Mike Serovey Loses To McNiff Again

This is my second correspondence game against McNiff played at ICC. This time I had White and played the Botvinnik system. I transposed into it from a Sicilian defense. McNiff now has a 4-0 record in correspondence chess at ICC. My record after 20 games is nowhere near as good! The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
