Hi Joe,

I finally got your dad. I had been waiting for quite a while to get a chance to play him. He has improved quite a bit over the last year. It was a tough game. I sacked a B for 2 pawns on h7. He had to give the B back a couple moves later, then we traded off Queen's. I had an easily won endgame but was down on my clock. I finished with 11 seconds left. I am sure your dad will tell you about how he hates time delay ;-)

It would be cool if my kid grows up to like chess. Have a good day and good luck with your game.

Hey Tim,

That sounds like a very good game. Congratulations! (I'll be seeing my folks soon, so I'll be sure to ask my dad about the game.)

I know, even when I play him with an electronic clock, he asks me to remove the time delay. He prefers his analog.

Thanks and have a good holiday!
