Mike Serovey Defeats Stahlberg

Here is a recently finished ICC correspondence chess game. I believe that this is the second time that I have played Stahlberg and the first time in correspondence chess. This is my first game finished in this section. This game, complete with analysis and diagrams, can be found at Here is the game in PGN.
