Oops. I posted this under another group.
Here is my second round. This may seem a bit boring compared with published play so I provided game 1 to interest the crossboard players. Next up will be the round with Moiseyev with some cooks revealed.


[Event "2013 OH 9-13 22-18 10-15"][Black "Clint Olsen"][White "Michael Holmes"][Result "1/2-1/2"]
1. 9-13 22-18 2. 10-15 25-22{for 26-22 see game 1} 3. 6-10 23-19 {I had studied 24-20 and 21-17 before to have a different option if I played the strong side the second game. Not knowing what the other guy will play and not having ever played Clint Olsen before I decided to stay with 23-19} 4. 11-16 18x11 5. 16x23 27x18 6. 8x15 18x11 7. 7x16 22-18 8. 4-8 18-14 9. 10x17 21x14 10. 1-6 {This is a very good move. The natural 16-20 is weak.} 31-27 11. 16-20 {Since 16-20 was not good at the last move I was hoping that 13-17 would be played here to a white win.} 29-25 12. 3-7 24-19 13. 8-11 25-21 14. 6-10 27-24 15. 10x17 21x14 16. 20x27 32x23 17. 2-6 23-18 18. 6-10 28-24 19. 10x17 24-20 20. 7-10 1/2-1/2

Game 1
[Event "2011 IL 9-13 23-18 10-15"][Black "Michael Holmes"][White "Larry Keen"[Result "1/2-1/2"]
1. 9-13 23-18 2. 10-15 26-23 {Here is a transposition from 9-13 22-18 10-15 26-22.} 3. 6-10 23-19 4. 11-16 18x11 5. 16x23 27x18 {With the piece missing on 26 red can jump either way. I take the single jump so as not to transpose.} 6. 7x16 30-26 7. 16-20 {Perhaps a little unorthodox but it gets the draw.} 24-19 8. 1-6 18-14 9. 10x17 21x14 10. 8-11 32-27 11. 3-7 19-15 12. 11x18 22x15 13. 7-10 14x7 14. 2x18 26-22 15. 18-23 27x18 16. 6-10 25-21 17. 10-14 18x9 18. 5x14 31-27 19. 12-16 27-23 20. 4-8 22-18 21. 16-19 23x16 22. 14x23 16-12 23. 8-11 12-8 24. 23-26 8-3 25. 26-31 3-7 26. 11-16 7-10 27. 16-19 29-25 28. 19-23 10-15 29. 23-26 25-22 30. 31-27 15-18 31. 26-31 22-17 32. 13x22 18x25 1/2-1/2

Game 2
[Event "2013 OH 9-13 22-18 10-15"][Black "Michael Holmes"][White "Clint Olsen"][Result "1/2-1/2"]
1. 9-13 22-18 2. 10-15 25-22 3. 6-10 23-19 4. 11-16 18x11 5. 16x23 27x18 6. 8x15 18x11 7. 7x16 22-18 8. 4-8 18-15 9. 10x19 24x15 10. 3-7 {I knew to cut the piece off but that was it. Everything just played out easy from there. I will say that 16-19 looks natural but is not advised as it probably loses.} 30-25 11. 7-10 15x6 12. 1x10 21-17 13. 13x22 25x18 14. 8-11 32-27 15. 2-6 29-25 16. 6-9 25-21 17. 10-14 26-23 18. 16-20 27-24 19. 20x27 31x24 20. 9-13 18x9 21. 5x14 24-20 22. 13-17 28-24 23. 17-22 24-19 24. 22-25 21-17 25. 14x21 1/2-1/2
