Well done, Arshaq!
After my game was finished, Papa (who had also won his game) and I walked over to Chick-Fil-A and ordered chicken sandwiches and a milk-shake. I'd never had a sandwich from Chick-Fil-A before, so after all the news coverage the restaurant received, I was very curious how their chicken sandwiches tasted. I also noticed that many other chess players were visiting the restaurant, so I was curious whether Chick-Fil-A sandwiches are good brain food. I wasn't disappointed.
Round 3 started and this time I was black against Roger S. and (of course) tried to launch the game into a Sicilian Dragon. My opponent kept the opening interesting with some unusual variations and traded down very early.
Pawns are essential!
Since Papa was still fighting it out over the 64 checkered squares, I returned to my position as a spectator. After his game, we trekked the mall one final time, getting plenty of stress-relieving exercise before the final round.
