Change of plans, not going to Nationals, but on individual strong tourney :) next sunday
anyone going to tape you so you can show us (that will never do that) how it goes? Would be interesting if possible.
17. TROHOV MEMORIAL
Unfortunately it's 15+0 as I can see now. I will try to write down the moves if possible (space, time). Or I will try to remember the games. Did pretty good job a year ago in a blitz tourney, but unfortunately my shape is quite poor right now, so I don't know. :)
OK, I might be back in solid shape again.
msc157 I went to your link above #15.3.2014 ...ah, is there an english version?
I think there's not, but I can translate it for you when I get to the computer.

And results from last year. Ok, it's gonna be tough.
To get good results in any and all OTB events, one needs to Specialize so as to accumulate a lot of knowledge about the middlegame arising from the opening one chose to specialize in.
Terrible tournament for me. 3/7 and 17th/27. But I was the lowest rated player there. Detailed "analysis" will be posted when official results come to the internet page of Slovenian Chess Federation. :)
If you're the lowest rated there, and finished far from last position, that's not so bad at all! I remember I tried a 6 round rapid tournament last year and was the lowest rated (standard grades were used, it wasn't a rated tourney though) in the section. Finished with 2/6 which I thought was horrible at the time, but wasn't too bad ratingwise. Did you gain rating points?
Its ok, its just 15 minutes which is not that much time. You might do better in longer time controls, and then you can find your true potential.
Usually I moved and immediately noticed the mistake. I will post a blog with all information but I think I would have gained 2nd most points of all players. About 40, said arbiter. But I am unrated player, so it's a mistery what could my rating be if I regularly played on these tourneys. I still insist on my estimation: 1777 :)
Nice! Yeah I missed two one-move forks losing a piece when I tried rapid. It's different visually to internet chess. I look forward to reading your blog!
The blog will be more about my thoughts during the tournament and unfortunately not analysis because I couldn't write down the moves. I produced 2 super entertaining games, everybody was watching because they were the last games of its round. :)
Should still be an interesting read! You should see if you can reconstruct one or two of your more memorable efforts from memory, I reckon you would be able! I was able to in the rapid tournament I played, roughly reconstructed all 6 games I played on the train back. It's not as tricky as it may seem and could be worth it :)
I will finish the blog tomorrow. Appeared I have quite a few difficulties setting the position up or an endgame. Hopefully I manage to write this.
OK, here it is. My memory is bad. As much as King's gambit as black.
