The first game was tough. I was feeling lost right from the beginning, because I'm not yet comfortable with how to respond to 1. d4 as black. Definitely need some study time on that!
I felt much more confident in the second game, despite him opening with the completely unfamiliar 1. f4.
I felt like I was close to a win in my third game, and then lost it. The computer didn't think I was as close as I did though!
The fourth game was quite quick. My opponent wasn't having a good day.

I played in a four round tourney yesterday. I won 2 and lost 2, but overall felt better than the last time I tried the 4 rounder. Update: I just found that I won the best game prize in the "Reserve section" for one of my wins!
Below is one of my losses. My opponent was a 9 year old, who apparently has been playing in USCF rated games since he was 5.
Update: Here is my other loss, the last game of the day.
And here is the game that won me the $15 best game prize! :)

UPDATE: Game updated with computer analysis (which is a little depressing!)
