I recently went for my 3rd rated tournament. (2nd Rapid one)

In my opinion, I played very well, because my performance was 1688, much better than my previous rated tournaments. Another surprising thing was that I got a rated player in every round with the exception of the first. Lol, that is something which I certainly wouldn't have even dreamt to do, because in my previous rated tourneys, less than 50% of my opponents were rated.

Btw, the event was attended by around 400 people.

I scored 7.5/11 and won 700 rupees. (6 wins, 3 draws, 2 losses)

Here is one of my games:

With this tournament, I am supposed to become a rated player, waiting for my rating to get published in the rating list. Don't know why, but it seems like a very long wait. :)
PS: I didn't post about my second tourney, because my performance was too bad. :P
