I fought as hard as I could but couldn't convert my 2 pawn advantage in the endgame. I guess I need more practice in that area. My opponent was the same guy I drew with the last time. He was nice enough to do a post-mortem with me and showed me where I could have won the game and how to do it. Interestingly he also reads my blog. I forgot to ask him how he found out about it. You know, for some reason I find the chess players on the net seem to be more helpful than the players I meet in the local club.
