All is well?

I got excited when I saw the desperado 14...Nxg3 15.Nxc5 Nxf1 but then when I saw 16. Qd3/Qd4 my bubble burst. Always a pleasure to look at your [annotated] games. I ration myself to a couple per week so I don't run out.

  Eric Schiller: This was one of my only two losses in the 9-round event, the other was against Michael Wilder, and I would have won the tournament with a draw. This was a milestone tournament for me, earning a FIDE result and USCF Master title. My most memorable game was against Lev Alburt, a miracle save, and I had impressive wins against masters Williams and Massana. The Caro-Kann served me particularly well. In my other game against Zaltsman, I earned a draw in an international event.

This was during the heyday of international chess in New York, which for a decade or so offered many international tournaments with reasonable entry fees. Sadly, that's all in the past now.
