LICC March Open, 5th Round

Mar 31, 2011, 9:30 PM |

Below is the game I played in the 5th and final round of the LICC March Open. Up to this point, it was a pretty good tournament for me, with one win, one draw, one loss, and one win coming in the form of a bye. I stood with 2.5 points, with the potential to get into second or third place overall if I scored a win. More importantly, I had almost clinched first within my division (U1500).

Fortunately, I won my game, ended taking home a nice division prize, as well as actually finding myself in a four way tie for second place. If I had managed a draw in the previous round, which might have been possible until I blundered with f3, I would have been taking home an even bigger prize.
