A couple days ago I played in the Seattle Chess Club's Sunday Tornado. I finished with a score of 1.5 out of 4- not the greatest, but acceptable. In the first round I played an 1800 player- almost 500 points higer rated than me. I ended up eking out a draw. I then played a master who lost the first round and got completely annihilated. I lost the next round to a 1500, but then beat an unrated in 25 moves. My goal for next time- 2 points. I hope I can achieve it and keep on improving!
