Mike Serovey Loses To tsia68

Here is an old game played at ICC. I do not know the date of this game or the ratings of the two players at the time of the game. This is an interesting game because I was losing even though up material! At the point where I resigned I was up a Queen, Rook, Knight, and pawn! I had to resign because White was threatening a mate in one and I had no way to stop it. This game is a Closed Sicilian defense. The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
