2011 Fargo Chessnuts - Part 1

GM Yermo on the marquee

GM Yermolinsky laying down the rules of engagement

Greetings - Ken Einarsson is to my left

Game started 1.d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3.Nf3

Final position - Black was crushed in just over 20 moves. I took a somewhat poisoned pawn, gave up another tempo later, and then missed the power of Qh5. But the Subway sandwiches were good !
I was sure Ken would be mated before my game was over. Look at that monarch on h6.

The playing hall.

Me and Yermo holding down the top 2 boards. Okay, the sharp observer will note that we both have the White pieces. I am playing IM Victor Adler. r

Les Mundwiler versus GM Yermolinsky.

The inscriptioning

Les chuckles at the message, "I will squish you like a bug if you play the open Sicilian".

Les plays the Closed Sicilian.

The very competent TDs/organizers and all-around good-guys, Brian Thompson and Lon Larson
