Painful French Exchange in First Round

Jul 22, 2017, 11:04 AM |

First round in my Houston tourney.  Hard time sleeping the night before as I hadn't played one of these bigger ones in awhile.  

We played the French Exchange.  It was fairly even until the 19th move where I botched it.  One blunder each 3 mistakes each, but he had 20 Excellent to my 16.
