  FSR: Dean explains that he wasn't familiar with the Latvian Gambit. He accordingly decided to try to play his usual defense to the King's Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.f4 Nf6) with the extra tempo a3, analogously to lines like 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.a3.
Jul-01-16  deanman58: I previously played Erik Karklins 10 years earlier, when he was only 85 years old. Back then, he was at his USCF rating floor of 2000. I got an easy draw with White, but figured he was now old and not that good anymore. So here I play him again when he was 95 years old, his rating had gone up, and he kicked my ass!!
