US Chess Correspondence

In June I started an email correspondence tournament though the US Chess Federation. I played 6 games, with the longest lasting over 3 months. The official time control was 30 days for each 10 moves and we would send emails back and forth with our next move.

One of my correspondence games was just featured by US Chess in their monthly newsletter. I was very surprised to see that!

Here is the writeup from US Chess:

Here Matt wins from the white side of a Caro-Kan to start +3=2=0 so far in his first US Chess correspondence tournament, 2021 Electronic Knights section 21EN11. Matt introduces a couple nice tactics at moves 20 and 24 to gain a clear advantage, and then a winning one.
