Mike Serovey Defeats ThreeofSeven Yet Again

I finished my third game with ThreeofSeven yesterday. This is an interesting game because my opponent was threatening a mate in one for about 10 moves but never got to play the mating move because his own King was too exposed to my checks. He made me play this one out to checkmate instead of resigning. This is my third win against ThreeofSeven and it gives me my highest correspondence rating so far.

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