Nigel vs Dane, Game 6 of the First DeVour Cafe Match-up Tournament

Good play from Dane, not so good play from me - especially move 28. I should have resigned when it was clear I wasn't going to win, but sometimes it's nice to at least watch the opponent uncomfortable with the stress of making sure a stalemate doesn't eventuate. Bad sportsmanship... what can I say? Nice work, Dane.

Current standing (first to 5 points): 
  • Dane: 2.5 
  • Nigel: 3.5
