#412 Gauntlet Finale

My last game was your typical tourney-ending, GM draw :

[Event "STC Gauntlet - FICS Wild Card"]
[Site "FICS"]
[Date "2008.12.05"]
[Round "5.2"]
[White "jmoldovan"]
[Black "StrokerAce"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
[ECO "D36"]
[WhiteElo "1816"]
[BlackElo "1893"]
[PlyCount "35"]
[EventDate "2008.11.04"]
[EventRounds "5"]
[Source "The Chess Coroner #412"]
[SourceDate "2008.12.05"]

{Queen's Gambit, Exchange Variation}
1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 c6 3. c4 Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. cxd5 exd5 6. Bg5 Nbd7 7. e3 Be7 8.

Qc2 O-O 9. Bd3 Re8 10. h3 Nf8 11. O-O-O Be6 12. Kb1 N6d7 13. Bf4 b5 14.
Ne5 $146 Rc8 15. Rc1 a6 16. Nxd7 Qxd7 17. Rhd1 Ng6 18. Bg3 $11 1/2-1/2

Here's the brief
replay.

With a
5.5-4.5 count, I'll likely land in 20th-place when the event ends. For the #14 seed, that's disappointing result but I'm relieved that the season is over and very pleased to have a scored 70.3% with White this year!

I'll post full notes to all of my Gauntlet games sometime tomorrow.
