Tom Fries Open - Round 1

Got to try out my (aka GM Dzindzi's) French system for the second time. Not positive if I'll stick with it, but I'm going to keep experimenting with it for now. So far 2 draws in tournament games with it.

SDDC Senior/Junior Open

Day 1

Matchups were rough for round 1, with my opponent rated (exactly) 500 points above me, but I had an awesome chance that I blew! If I had just applied the "Dembo Rule" (from her book "The Very Unusual Book About Chess" which I quite like) about the "point of intersection" on move 14, I might have found 14. Rxf5, leading to a pretty crushing attack.

Round 2, on the other hand, I am a little embarrassed of.

Took a Round 3 bye. Rounds 4 & 5 tomorrow after some rest!
