Bill Murray Swiss Round 3; 0-3 so far

This is not my tournament. I made such a depressing blunder at the end.

Today's Gambito

Made it out for a Saturday tournament. First game was the first time I felt pretty good coming out of the opening against the French.



Second round I got soundly trounced.



Might have done better in round 3 with some additional endgame study.



The last round I played a completely unsound game like a maniac, but it was fun and I got a win.

I blew a good chance on this game. Very disappointing.

Leonard Sussman Open - Round 6

Couldn't go to bed until I took a look at it. I didn't put much of the analysis in, but I definitely missed some chances.

Pacific Southwest Open

I'm in Los Angeles for the Pacific Southwest open. Signed up for the 2 day schedule, and took a first round bye so I didn't have to wake up too early. Got a win in my first game, Round 2.




Round 3 was a loss. This one was especially disappointing because my opponent had the game wrapped up, but then blundered to let me back in, but I failed to take advantage. I get too stupid in time trouble.



Round 4



Round 5. Went dumb early, and tried to fight my way back, but couldn't manage.



Withdrew before the last round to head home.
