First, I met THE MAN, Rolf Wetzell and had him sign my dog-eared copy of his LANDMARK, BDK- D-graded-but-that's-because-he-doesn't-know-better, book titled "Chess Master...at Any Age"
He's a decent guy. I joked about not wanting to tear up dollar bills to condition myself for better adherence to time control as suggested in his book. He said that the idea actually stemmed from a golf improvement thing where if you miss the par you are to tear up a dollar.
It warmed my heart to watch this advanced aged man beat the pants off of a 1900 rated kid! He is my idol and inspiration...knowing he earned his master title after reaching 50... and sustaining that level of play, unlike others ( including myself) who sometimes feel their rating is impervious to any kind of chess improvement plan.
In any case, the game I played against a player 100+ higher in rating than I was a Caro-Kan than had me in a slightly bad position with a pawn down entering the middle-game. The only compensation was that I was able to activate my rooks and double them up while attack the center as I learned from my chess ancestors. The game ( posted here with my annotations) ended in a brilliant romantic style, complete with the tension grabbing advanced h7 pawn for white not being able to queen due to my persistent mate threat.
Here is the final position to placate the lazy:
position after 41...b5#
