Mike Serovey Defeats ZiggyStardust

I recently started playing a quad at ICC. I wanted to even up my score in correspondence chess at ICC and get my cc rating over 1600. In my first game from this quad that I completed I drew ZiggyStardust in 12 moves with White. This is the second game completed. This was a rather easy win playing the Black side of a Sicilian defense, Grand Prix attack. This win brings my cc rating up to 1596, my highest so far and my score in cc to 14-14-6. The game, complete with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
