update and marshall game

I am almost finished Alburts Comprehensive Chess Course V2. I only have chapter 12 to go which is a series of tests (tactical problems).Although not complete here is a link to the games in the book.I have a handfull to add to it.

Alburts CCC games

I seem to be stabilized in my ratings with my last 100 plus games I have run between
1480's and 1580's on Playchess.com. There have been no extended winning/losing streaks that I am accustomed to. My endgame play has improved somewhat which I attribute to doing the endgames exercises in the Comprehensive Chess Course V2.

I recieved a book this week on the Marshall Attack from interlibrary loan. I find the game to be very interesting and now can stay within book for about 16 moves. This is very natural for me and does not feel like rote mechanical play.

Here is an example from a game yesterday which I entered into Fritz. It's not complete I lost as black so should of took a draw of repetition when I had white king in the corner.
