    Getting a bit ahead of yourself there DD. Aki J can still head you off.

    Oh dear, how sad, never mind. He only needs a draw and last time I checked a stalemate was a drawn game, so my original statement stands.

    I guess you can comment on this game since it's mate in 2 and my opponent knows that.

    He has 3 days to move with his timebank evaporated.

    True, but barely. Since the odds of him actually getting out of that game with a draw, while managing to win the rest of his games.

    Kudos on defending a comment that really didn't need defending (or posting at all), though.

    I recently won the same tournament in just a bit higher band. My second one, though, after losing many finals...

    You're battle-hardened finals experiences finally payed off.
    Way to go!

    Damn it, I am going to have to either redouble my efforts to improve or drop my rating about 500 points to get some tournament wins.

    Your tournament entry rating can't drop lower than your highest rating within the last 100 days, so you're entry rating at the minimum has to be 1957, unless you left the site for 100 days and got your rating to about 1500.
