My Best Rapid Tournament Yet
Yesterday, I had my best rapid tournament yet, losing against a 2361 but winning back to back against a 1718 and a 1901. In both of the games that I won, my opponents outplayed me to reach better but not yet winning positions, but I played actively and always had a huge time advantage, and both of these factors led to them missing tactics and losing.
The time control was 29 minutes per side, which has historically been my worst control, but my rapid rating ended up going to a new peak of 1645 (+99), which is not far behind my regular rating of 1676! To view the annotated game against the 1700, click on the link below:
