Mike Serovey Loses to Terry Kay

I entered a thematic tournament in which we are to play both the White and Black sides of the Reti opening. In tis game my opponent chose to break form this and to transpose into a Queens Gambit Declined instead of staying with the Reti like he was supposed to. I blundered and lost in 25 moves.

This game, with analysis and diagram, can be found at I still have my game as White against Terry still playing. Here is this game in PGN.
