On January 2nd and 3rd I competed in the annual castle championship, it was my first time going so I didn't know what to expect. Needless to say it was my best tournament ever. I beat two class A players, 1 expert, and drew two masters. Throw in a win a loss to an expert, and a win against a 1300 my rating soared, going from 1735 USCF to 1885! Knowing me though it was probably a fluke. ;) thanks for reading!
