Shiny objects.....

This past Saturday we had another TACO (Triangle Area Chess Open) here in Raleigh. A quick glance at the crosstable would indicate I had a decent tournament, but the truth is that for the second straight TACO I feel like I left alot on the table. Yes, I have the excuse of being the tournament's director, but these symptoms keep cropping up quite often for me. If I'm going to advance to the next level as a player (that would be expert,) I have to clean up my game, and work through the whole game.

Here's my first game. I almost let this one slip, but got out with a win. I'll post my round two loss to a master tomorrow. I doubt I'll post round three since there really wasn't much redeeming about the game.
