Battle of the Titans
Coach Neil Mott of Rolling Meadows reminded me that I have been somewhat remiss in updating my blog and he particularly expressed an interest in seeing the showdown between the two top players in the conference, Buffalo Grove's Matt Wilber and Prospect's Robert Moskwa. I wish it were a more exciting game than it was. Robert achieved a solid position with the Black pieces out of the opening but over optimistically snatched what only looked like a free pawn on his 17th move. He quickly found himself down a pawn in a cramped position which is the last thing you want against a player of Matt's abilities. Matt kept tight control of the position and ground out the win.
