Mike Serovey Defeats Stephen D. Cohle

I just finished another correspondence chess game at ICC. This win leaves me with 2 wins, 0 losses and 2 draws in this section. I don't know how I placed in this section because ICC hasn't updated the cross table in quite a while. At the start of this section my opponent was rated 1622 and he dropped to 1596 as a result of this game. My rating increased to 1580. It is very unlikely that I will finish my remaining correspondence chess game by the end of the year so I still won't make my goal of getting my rating over 1600 by the end of the year.

The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
