Mike Serovey Defeats Sean McKinney for a Second Time

Here is another ICC correspondence chess game I recently finished. I attempted to play the Max Lange attack but got steered into a Two Knights defense instead. Black played a Queen sacrifice that turned out to be unsound and was down material when he resigned. This win gives me a plus record at ICC and my highest correspondence chess rating so far.

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