Summer Tournament Update


Camenares - Matlin
Black to play and win.

Last week I wrote about summer tournament upsets scored by unrated Devin Camenares (who drew a master) and 10-year-old Anna Matlin (who beat an 1800 player). This week, it was Camenares - Matlin, which ended in a draw only because there was no way for Matlin to win an Exchange up with only 12 seconds and 5-second increment on the clock... The game was hard-fought all the way, but did reveal that these young players could both benefit from more opening study.
