National Open 2010 - Las Vegas - Day 1 Update
Day 1 is now in the books and what a long day it was! I'm playing in the U1600 division and am facing quite the field (my 1428 rating has me in 77th place coming in).
Rounds 1 and 2 were today and I was able to walk out with a 2-0 score. Round 1 was slightly lame because my opponent, Jeff Allen Jolley, didn't show up. I waited two hours for his time to run out only to find that I only had to wait an hour to get the forfeit win. Rounds 2 was exciting because I got to play the King's Gambit. I've been trying to incorporate this opening back into my repertoire and this was a nice comeback. Here's the game:
Let's hope tomorrow goes as well!
