This Monday, I went to a local quad. Not much happened, except I beat a 1490ish player (who also happened to be TDing). The win was a fluke; he grabbed an irrelevant pawn when he should've stopped my passed pawn and won the game.
This evening, karma got me back (all this from memory; I've gone over it that many times in my head):
Maybe I should take up something less frustrating, like an RPG.
