It's been a busy couple of weeks, but I'm back blogging again. I'm in preparation for the final match of the DC Chess League season, which will likely put me up against a GM. In a probably unwise strategy I spent way too long today trying to get my 3-minute ICC rating back from what I considered too low to be seen with. Eventually I got it back in the normal range, thanks in part to wins at the end against GMs Eugene Torre and Aleksa Strikovic. The final game against Strikovic looked lost for a long time, but eventually we reached the following position, where black made the wrong move and lost despite his extra rook. What would you play?
