Chess Club OTB Game

Here is a long game that I played against Bill from the chess club.(we play without clocks) He plays better than I but occasionally, I steal one from him. I thought this was going to be an example of how he beat me positionally however I see that I missed a tactic which would of put me ahead. I traded queens when I simply could of took his Knight and be up a few pawns. He marched his pawns up on the Kingside and I could not stop it. I do not have the complete game recorded here is up to where I missed the tactic.

This was a fairly even game Fritz showed at move 18 it was =. In fact there were only three Fritz suggestions covering the first 23 moves.

Bill played Bobby Fischer in the 1964 simul in Fitchburg, MA. He has an autographed scoresheet and I hope one day to see it. This game was never published.
