Finally made it over that incredible 5 game hurdle to get into my first online tournament. While I struggle with openings, it seems that focusing on the d4-e6 squares and looking for pins or forks provides a strong basis for competing with other online users. I, of course, have my share of blunders and regret the poor play against 'your_mom_is_a_joke.' However on a more positive note, I've managed to turn around a victory against 'garnettmvp2008.'
