Horrible chess doesn't always produce horrible results: Washington G/60 Championship Day 2

Horrible chess doesn't always produce horrible results: Washington G/60 Championship Day 2

Ok, so this happened nearly a month ago, but finally I have time to write about the event, and since I have Internet at my house now, it is way easier to post blogs. Also, I like putting my games up so I don't lose the games.

In Round 4, I was paired as black against the intimidating young girl Alison Xiao. Well, I had played her once before, when she was 900, and I drew her after I got a crazy boring Petroff's. I probably shouldn't have played that opening, since it can be way too drawish sometimes. Well, I dumbly tried it again. After just 7 moves, the engine would give her a +10 edge! She caught me in an opening trap. 

 My buddy Alex, who I brought to the event, lost again, while Oscar and Jacob won. Andy Huang lost, and ended up losing all his games. Unlike the previous day, however, there was not as much craziness between games, so it was not very exciting. Then Round 5 came. My opponent, Jasen Reeves, had beaten my friend Alex earlier, so Alex hoped that I would win this game. 

 
And after this game Me and Oscar were tied for first for the prize of U1800. He had to play a master in the last round, and I had to play... Brendan Zhang... 
 
In the end, I "won" $20, (EF: $35). Hopefully in the future I will play some decent games!
