From 22nd to 29th I played 9 games at the Menton Open and I had a pretty bad tournament. I keep making mistakes and blunders at a big rate
Here are a position from each game and the result:
The result of this last position may be somewhat surprising but it explains well why I'm 1700 OTB. I just blunder from time to time (maybe too often) and without any clue why I'm doing this and what to do about that.
I'll have nightmares about this during a long time...
My conclusion about the tournament:
- A very good organization in a very nice place
- In most of the games (7 out of 9) I was happy with my homemade opening preparation
- I still have difficulties to understand correctly some position
- I do blunders!!!
