Beloungie FIDE Rated Dutch Defence

Lance Beloungie wins a FIDE rated game in a Dutch Defence. Years ago it was hard to play FIDE rated games in the USA unless you lived near a city and had a master rating. I did not play any FIDE rated games until I was over 50 years old and well past my prime. Nowadays many tournaments might have qualified games rated by FIDE. Lance is a long time friend of Ray Haines. I appreciate his humor.

"Ray said you were looking for Dutch defense games (no matter how meager), so, here one is (along with my musings). This is my first win over a FIDE rated opponent in a FIDE rated event, thus, I'll get a rating if I live long enough. His pre-event USCF rating was 2013 and his FIDE was 1947. One interesting sidelight. His chess board mannerisms are very similar to my own; Huffing and puffing with lots of moanings. It must have been amusing if anyone watched us."

Yes, I enjoy receiving games from readers. I use some of his annotations in the notes.
