A typical "Tiger" positional game. First he restricts you.
Then he exploits your weaknesses and just like a boa con-
strictor slowly and decisively he devours you! ~lol~ ;-)

Both original scoresheets are in very good shape (they
remained boxed & fully protected for over twenty-seven
years). The scoresheets are signed by both players on
each scoresheet (matched set). Suitable for framing... :-)

Just because it's funny I had to add this to my eBay ad
(my standard revisions disclaimer follows):

Note: All revisions to the text were to tweak the layout, the color
selections & to correct the exact wording. One word: finished! :-)

Hehehe... Good try prophylactic chess breath... Corrected Art's
move #49 to 49... Nd6 instead of 49... Nf6 and also inserted the
correct Time Control above the game score (Thanks Allan! :-)))

Everything is *now* fixed... ~lol~ :-)
