Mike Serovey Loses to the Italian Master, Gaetano Caradonna

I recently finished a game that was played on the ICCF server. This game, complete with analysis and diagrams, can be found at More complete analysis of this game, and my other games that I played against masters, will be found in my members only area of my chess site once I get it set up. For now, I need to finish the online class in legal and ethical issues and then move before I will have the time and energy to work on that part of my site.

Here is the game in PGN:
