Journey of a Patzer
Hi Friends!! Recently i took part in the first rated tourney of my life "GTC Chess Classic" , really had an awesome experience and got to learn so much about chess. It was an international event and players from neighbouring nation were seen in few numbers. we played two games a day, each with a time control of 90 mins + 30 sec increment from the first move. I was lucky enough to face 9 rated player out of 10 games i played and scored 5.5 points. After going down against 1862 rated opponent i managed to win some over rated players with rating of 1547,1489,1346 and 1678 respectively. My only draw was against a rated player 1479. I will love to share my games to you all. By earning few points i achieved an international fide rating of 1579 and got the best unrated award. Got a Fide ID now http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?event=25603299 , i want to thanks chess.com , it is the place where i came to know chess and rules like en passant, i never could afford premium membership over here but yes the articles were enough, thanks so much. I owe my success to this site. well not exactly a success but a start of a journey.. a journey of a patzer!. here is a link to my previous blog http://www.chess.com/blog/Crazy_Assassin/first-mile-stone .Thank you all!!
