Mike Serovey Defeats diegogac

I won Round 3 of the 11 PM Open section of the July Standard tournament at ICC. That makes my current score 1-2. If I win the last round I may get a prize for the best score under 1600. Either way, it would be nice to break even in an open tournament. I played the Kings Indian Attack for a change of pace from the usual Reti and English openings. My opponent last a pawn in a combination and then walked into a fork on his King and Queen. That is when he resigned making this my fastest win in a very long time. However, he still had a defensible position if he had chosen to play it out. The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
