Ashik vs IM Ricardo De Guzman (Drawn), Best of the West, Round 1

Just one day after defeating IM Ricardo, I got paired against him again in first round of Best of the West Championship in Santa Clara Marriott. This time I drew a completely winning position, thanks to Ricardo's good knowledge of rook ending and my lack of it. Still I have nothing to regrest drawing against an IM!

Won Another Game Against IM Ricardo De Guzman

As I and my son Ahyan regularly play Friday Night Marathon at Fremont Norcal House of Chess, I frequently face IM Ricardo De Guzman there. I invariably loose all the time except once I won. Today won a second time. If you want to check my first win against Ricardo, here it is.
