I would like to share my favorite and most interesting games of the tournament. Enjoy!

[Event "9-14, 22-17, 11-15"]
[Date "2013-07-31"]
[Black "Chuck Freeman"]
[White "Joe"]
[Result "0-1"]

1. 9-14 22-17 2. 11-15 25-22 3. 8-11 17-13 4. 11-16 29-25(I prefer this move over 24-19) 5. 16-20 24-19 6. 15x24 28x19 7. 4-8 22-17 8. 8-11(red also has 14-18 in this spot for a strong man down draw for red and forces white to play very carefully) 19-16(25-22, 11-16 strong for red) 9. 12x19 23x16 10. 11-15 26-23 11. 7-11(Was not expecting this move, but rather 5-9) 16x7 12. 2x11 25-22 13. 5-9 31-26 14. 1-5 23-18 15. 14x23 27x18 16. 20-24 30-25 17. 3-7 32-28 Leading to this interesting position:

Red to move and lose?

Program does not pick it up right away, but it seems as if this position may lose for red.
18. 24-27 28-24 19. 27-31 24-20 20. 15-19 26-23 21. 19x26 18-14 22. 9x18 22x8 (now red is in serious trouble) 23. 31-27 8-3 24. 5-9 25-22 25. 27-23 20-16 26. 23-19(if 30-26, the 22-18! pitch continues to put great pressure on red) 22-18 27. 19x12 17-14 28. 10x17 3x1 29. 9-14 0-1

This was the most mental energy I have ever had to spent in one game to get a win on. My plan was to make the game complicated as I needed to win and I am just lucky it went my way. I think the 7-11 move on move 11 made the game much tougher for Chuck, but either way, this is a very tricky and interesting version of the pioneer line.

7-11 s a disaster and 3126 not much better.....and later crowning 8-3? when 1714xx instead is too easy.........
