Nervous Wreck..... By the one and only..... 1400136896 :)

I am really scared because in 2 days, I am joining this ''national'' tournament.

My mom said she'd put me in K-3 instead the usual group I go to which is K-8.

The reason why she did this was because there were probably gonna be tough players in the other groups.

It is really a good thing that I have practiced a lot including in my tactics.

Toward my last blitz games, I won all of them!

Well I can't wait! And probably I might get last place...

But we have to get positive.....

Tips from me if your joining a chess tournament

  • Wait until you learn all the chess rules in a tournament. On my first tournament, they gave me a sheet of paper which explained all the rules.
  • Be sure to bring a chess clock if you want to!
  • Do not cheat during a tournament. You will be excluded from the tournament and banned.

OK, so my last rule ^^ you may not understand how you would cheat.

Really you would use an engine on a phones and electronics. (Engines: Stockfish, AlphaZero, etc.)

So that last tip wasn't really encouraging you to cheat, it was really just giving you an example of what people might use.

So as I was saying I hope I get 1st -10th place because that's the only places you get for trophies!

I think there are also cash prizes! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Well,c ya next time wink.png
