On Thursday, I received this e-mail from Matt Phelps, who lost to my teammate Ziping Liu in the final round of the USATE 2010.
Thanks for posting my last round game with Ziping (really!). I can't remember if I explicitly congratulated him for the cleverness of the mating attack. Please convey that to him if you get the chance. Let's hope we all meet again next year, but this time on board 1 for all the marbles!

As Ziping's chess teacher, I can tell you that it is the best game he has ever played!
