KCC Summer Tourney, Round One

White to play and win.
It was a dark and very stormy night... and so only nine players signed up on the first day of the annual Kenilworth Chess Club Summer Tournament.  However, there is still plenty of time to join, and until we break 20 there will be open enrollment.  I played a quick game with Greg Tomkovich, who usually beats me on the clock with his speedy play.  I kept good pace with him, but in doing so ended up flirting too much with danger and granted him a nice shot (see diagram above and notes below).  Fortunately, still playing quickly, he missed it...  A fun game.
