OTB Triumph


I don't often win OTB games against players who are 400 rating points my senior, but tonight I did it and I am on a high from it that will hopefully last for days!

My opponent is a board 1 player in our state (he competes in state level tournaments) and I fully expected to come home with another loss to analyse and learn from, but instead I came home with a scoresheet that I want to laminate!!

I don't often boast of wins, but in this case, YIPEEE!!  I didn't blunder and held on even under strong time pressure and some worrying positions.  I feel like I have conquered a monkey on my back!


You can't enjoy this game as much as I did, but I hope you enjoyed it Smile
