Didn't play very well today. 1 win and 2 losses.

Here's one of the losses. The game went on for a little while longer with me in serious time trouble, which I never deal with well anyway.

Last round of the tourney

I prepped special for my opponent, knowing he would be playing the London system. (He did scare me by playing an alternate move order, but luckily for me it came back to what I prepped!) I felt really good about my position out of the opening. Then I couldn't hold on, and offered a draw in a fit of discouragement. I know I should have played it out since I really need endgame practice, but was afraid to try and fail, I have to admit!

Played in another Gambito yesterday. Overall I'd say I had a decent day. I didn't feel like I was playing my best (probably because I'm more comfortable with a longer time control), but I'm happy with my results.

First game was my only loss of the day.

Round 2

Round 3:

Coming soon

Round 4. Fun one with Chuck!

Draw for round 4 of Wednesday night tourney

I am really happy with this game. I came into it really tired and grumpy, so wasn't expecting much, but I managed to do ok and get a draw despite that. I just ran it through the computer analysis, and I think this is the cleanest game according to the engine analysis that I've ever had!

Super Gambito

Played in my first Gambito in a few weeks. Took a bye the first round, and played 3 games.

Here's the first one. Even on a quick win, the computer analysis always makes me feel a bit dumb. :)

Second game. My one loss. It was a fun one, though!

Third game.
