#399 Gauntlet Game Tonight

My first game in the STC Gauntlet's 2nd round is tonight at 8:15 p.m on FICS. I'll be playing a late-joining, 1739-rated from Utah.

If you aren't a Free Internet Chess Server member & want to watch, just download, install & run an interface (BabasChess & Thief are good. More choices here), logon as a guest (or first register) and "follow jmoldovan".

When the game is over, I'll insert the replay link & paste the PGN.


Update 9:25 p.m. - I won with a Q sac ! :
