Here is my most interesting draw.

[Event "2010 IL101 10-14 24-20 11-16"]
[Date ""]
[Black "Albert Tucker"]
[White "Michael Holmes"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
1. 10-14 24-20 2. 11-16 20x11 3. 8x15 28-24 4. 6-10 24-20
{Although Elbert Lowder lost this move to Moiseyev I won with this move in one of the US National's against my good friend Clayton Nash.}
5. 7-11
{But this move took me by surprise. Now I employ a cat and mouse game which Albert cleverly avoided any traps.}
22-17 6. 1-6 25-22 7. 3-7 23-18 8. 14x23 27x18 9. 9-14 18x9 10. 5x14 17-13 11. 4-8 30-25
12. 15-18 22x15 13. 11x18 26-22 14. 10-15
{I can only take my hat off to Albert's excellent playing.} 31-27 15. 8-11 27-23 16.
18x27 32x23 1/2-1/2


This was the second game. The first game was a standard published play draw.
