Mike Serovey Draws Tom G. Schrade

Here is an old USCF correspondence chess game. This is one of two games that I played against Tom in this section. It appears that I ended up with 2 losses and 2 draws in this section. This game is one of my correspondence games in which I played the White side of the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. I no longer play this gambit because I no longer remember how to. If I were to play it now it would be as a surprise weapon against someone who does not know it. The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
