USCF Game 44(L): Kindred-Tootle
So fast forward 3 and a half years I’m back at my local tournament the King’s Island Open. This time I’m coming in at 1403 and entering the U1500 section. Sometimes you run into the tournament champion in the first round and that is what happened to me this time. Tim Tootle was rated 1496 at the time with a peak rating of 2004. I remember the game being close but I ran into time trouble and lost my way. I guess considering he ends up a 2000+ player it isn’t to bad of a loss lol.
